Matthew Parks became a radiographer and then a science teacher thanks to his studies at Sheffield Hallam University, now he’s hoping it will help him launch a third career - as entrepreneur.
He’s one of six finalists in the Enterprise Challenge, the university’s flagship business competition, now in its 14th year.
He has launched an internet search engine that could revolutionise the way people find holiday bargains. 1Plus2Travel.com allows people to compare flight and hotel prices in a single search, viewing options from hundreds of different travel companies. More than 100,000 people have used it already.
Challenge winners will be announced at a university dinner on October 2.
