The BBC Apprentice series returns to our screens this year, kicking off on March 21th.
Meet Nick Holzherr from Birmingham, one of this year’s Apprentice candidates who will compete for the £250,000 investment fund from Lord Sugar and to become Lord Sugar’s business partner.
Name: Nick Holzherr
Occupation: Technology Entrepreneur
Nick, who lived in Switzerland for seven years as a child, was named ‘emerging entrepreneur of the year’ by Insider Magazine in 2010.
When Nick was nine years old he earned money by selling lost golf balls back to golfers. He enjoys playing squash, snowboarding and cooking, and loves buying kitchen gadgets.
Nick feels his intelligence is one of his strengths but knows his impatient nature can sometimes make him come across as arrogant. He would like to build and sell his own businesses before becoming an investor in start-up companies, and cites Steve Jobs as an inspiration.
He says: “I’ve got lots of ideas, I know how to whittle them down into ideas that will work and I’ve got what it takes to make them actually happen.”
