The boss of an entrepreneurial marketing start-up business is hoping to promote the value of young people in the borough after becoming a patron member of Doncaster Chamber.

Alex Dowie, owner and director of Keyhole Visuals, has become the town’s youngest owner of a Doncaster Chamber patron member business at the age of just 23.

He said: “Becoming a patron of Doncaster Chamber is a great opportunity for me to inspire other young business people in the town and show them that hard work and determination does pay off.

“Returning to my home town after university was a great business decision and allowed me to capitalise on a niche market within the Sheffield City Region.”

Established 18 months ago, Keyhole Visuals won two Doncaster Business Awards in 2015 for ‘Enterprise Start up of the Year’ and ‘Partnership of the Year’ and becomes Doncaster Chamber’s fifteenth patron member amongst other SMEs and long established companies.

Dan Fell, chief executive officer of Doncaster Chamber and the youngest ever chief executive of a British Chamber, said: “We are delighted that Alex and the Keyhole Visuals team accepted our invitation to become a patron.

“Great investment is being made in the future generations of Doncaster with the forthcoming opening of the High Speed Rail College and the proposed University Technical College.

“We look forward to working with Alex to promote the business opportunities that the town can offer.”
