Old Street pop-up shop: Open for business!

UK start-ups Lavolio and miPic are showcasing their wares from February 8 to February 14 at our pop-up in partnership with Sage One

Startups.co.uk is proud to announce that our pop-up shop has opened at the heart of Old Street underground station.

Fantastic start-up businesses Lavolio and miPic will be showcasing their offerings at the shop from 7:30am to 7:30pm until February 14.

Run in association with Sage’s online software Sage One, the pop-up shop will give competition winners Lavolio and miPic the chance to get their businesses in front of half a million people for free.

76,000 people enter and exit Old Street underground station every weekday, and the space is in prime position directly opposite the turnstiles so will give the two businesses incredible footfall and access to potential new customers.

The two start-ups were chosen following thousands of votes for six start-ups who fitted the theme of ‘love’, and Lavolio and miPic have received a £750 budget to kit out their part of the space, alongside promotion across our website, email and social channels.
