A man who founded a company now contracting to Google has won a top award.

James Morgenstern has won Hertfordshire’s Young Entrepreneur of The Year Award in recognition of the incredible success his company Ideal Insight has achieved over the past 12 months.

At 21, James started Ideal Insight from his bedroom after approaching Google with an idea to produce 360º virtual tours with Google street view technology.

Three years later Ideal Insight is now the UK’s official contractor to Google for the production, development and marketing of 360º Google Virtual Tours which brings Google Street View ‘off the street’ and ‘inside businesses’, enabling companies to showcase themselves as potential customers search online.

Local businesses with this service include Tring Park School, Bella Italia Hemel Hempstead and Champneys Tring. Visit www.idealinsight.co.uk
