Joseph Valente founded ImpraGas, the UK’s No1 new boiler installation company, in 2012 after completing an apprenticeship with a local plumbing firm. Starting as a solopreneur, he soon found he needed to build a team to cope with the demand for work. Expanding at an exponential rate by always providing an unbeatable service, ImpraGas now operates throughout the UK. Valente won the 2015 series of the BBC’s hit show The Apprentice gaining Lord Sugar as a 50% business partner as a result. In 2017, Valente bought back Lord Sugar’s shares in ImpraGas and has since seen his business turnover triple. Valente was awarded a place in the elite Start Ups Young Gun Class of 2017 and in 2018 he was recognised in the prestigious Forbes Europe 30 under 30. Expelled from the Classroom to Billionaire Boardroom, Valente’s debut novel, became an instant bestseller and remained at the top of the Amazon charts for weeks. http://www.impragas.co.
