The Start-Up Series competition is back for June with entries now open; giving your business the chance to win £150,000 in equity seed funding in the largest monthly competition of its kind.
Launched in partnership with experienced investors Worth Capital last October, each month The Start-Up Series offers one early-stage company every month the chance to win funding from a £1.8m Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) funding pot, alongside business support and extensive media coverage across Startups.co.uk.
The Start-Up Series has already named three winners, who have used the £150,000 prize and invaluable support to put exciting growth plans into action. These are:
Online property rental platform RentalStep won the inaugural October competition, with founder Mike Georgeson revealing that he will use the funding to launch a “rental revolution”.
Vegetarian fast-food brand Not Dogs – November’s winner – are ready to take their business nationwide, while December’s winning start-up Nuripod, the developer of an innovative portable baby food processor, has now launched and already has a range of other baby electrical products in the pipeline.
