Polly Gowers and Julia Felton, founders of Everyclick.com, the search engine that donates 50% of its income to charity, have been shortlisted for this year’s Jaeger-LeCoultre Telegraph Business Personality awards.
The two women are the featured candidates in Saturday’s Daily Telegraph. They both put up their homes as collateral to launch the company and they took nine months to plan the new service.
The company celebrates its first anniversary this week, and it already employs eight full-time staff.
Everyclick has already distributed over £30,000 to charity, and by last month had signed up 1,061 registered charities.
The Telegraph is publishing one profile of each shortlisted candidate every week, and readers can vote for their favourite candidate. At the end of the voting readers can vote once again from a shortlist.
