A Barking entrepreneur who used his last £300 to set up a business training other people has won two awards.

Moses Ted Andishu won the black entrepreneur and extraordinaire categories at the BE Mogul awards, which recognises success among black business owners.

He set up his company, Tedmoses, based in Town Quay Wharf, in 2010 after two years of being unemployed.

Moses moved to the UK from Nigeria in 1998, completing a Btec in business and IT. He followed this up with a range of other courses which allowed him to work in business and then in the media until 2008, when he found himself without a job.

“I decided to challenge myself to set up my own company,” he said.

With his last £300, he founded Tedmoses, which started life as a skills training company but soon began running accredited courses.
