When Andrew and Ross were just 24, they turned their love for golf into a well-established business. With just 30,000 GBP raised from credit cards, the duo launched YourGolfTravel.com in 2005. The company started from a small bedroom in Wimbledon. However, they have been able to turn this small venture into the largest Golf Travel Company in the world. In 2013, more than 300,000 golfers will play golf on 3,000 courses in 22 different countries. Everything will be booked through Your Golf Travel.
With the success of Your Golf Travel, the duo decided to come up with Spabreaks.com in 2008. This was followed by Racingbreaks.com in 2011. Every business idea from Andrew and Ross has been successful. In fact, sales from these businesses are estimated to be around £70 million this year. For a company just eight years old, this is tremendous success.
Currently, Andrew and Ross are looking for talented and ambitious entrepreneurs who want funding for exceptional and creative business ideas. They have also teamed up with Business Life Magazine and British Airways for this venture.
Budding entrepreneurs can easily submit their business plans via Business Life Magazine’s official website. The winner will be personally mentored by Andrew and Ross for six months. The winner will be able to learn ins and outs of starting a new business.

According to Marshall, ambitious entrepreneurs prove to be great for all industries. The travel sector is not any different. Entrepreneurs are perfect for travel industry too.

Entrepreneurs and established businesses in travel industry always look for innovations, improvements and efficiencies. With this venture, Andrew and Ross are looking for the same.
