Young entrepreneurs are pivotal to ensuring that small and medium-sized businesses will also be able to retain their key role in the economy and society in the future,” said Toni Meggle at the awards ceremony of the first MEGGLE Young Enterprise Award to mark the 125-year company anniversary in 2012.
