We’ve teamed up with Silicon Beach Training, Midnight Communications and Clear Business Development to bring an exciting opportunity to budding businesses in the South East.

The Silicon Beach Startup Competition, designed to help new businesses in the area, is offering £12,000 worth of essential business services – training, PR, business consultancy and accounting – to one lucky winner.

The rules are simple:

  • Your business must be younger than 24 months

  • You must be passionate about what you do

  • You must be prepared to prove that you are the best

  • Only one application per business

On April 18th 2014, five finalists will go head-to-head in front of a panel of some of the South East’s most successful entrepreneurs, including our own Darren Fell. The chosen finalists will present their business model to the judges, which will then be followed by a 10 minute Q&A session. Your A-game is very much required.

The successful startup will receive:

  • £10,000 of training at Silicon Beach Training.

  • £1,000 of PR consultancy with Midnight Communication.

  • A year’s subscription to Crunch’s worth around £900.

  • 2 days of business development consultancy with Clear Business Development worth £500.

The Application form must be filled in before 28th February 2014. For more information see the competition website – and good luck!
