Lord Sugar’s latest search for a new Apprentice came to a stunning conclusion this week on BBC one. Fans were delighted to see Joseph Valente win the series. In the nail-biting finale, the 26-year-old was told “you’re hired” by Lord Sugar. The entrepreneur has won the prize of a 50/50 business partnership and the £250,000 investment.
Joseph was up against the dating-gaming app by rival, Vana Koutsomitis. Joseph impressed by reacting to advice from industry experts, moving away from his original plan of concentrating on renewable energies, to emphasise his reliability and personal service. After being expelled from school at 14, Joseph transformed himself with his own plumbing business which he will now expand with Lord Sugar’s investment.
