Startacus Co-Founder recognised in the Maserati 100
by Startacus Admin
Startacus HQ are delighted to announce that Alastair Cameron, Co-Founder of Startacus has been selected as as one of the Maserati 100.
The Maserati 100 is a joint campaign between Maserati North Europe and the Centre for Entrepreneurs to recognise and celebrate 100 successful UK-based entrepreneurs who are giving back to the next generation of entrepreneurs - through investing, mentoring and other support.
As one of The Maserati 100, Alastair was featured on Sunday in a special spread in the Sunday Times as well as The Maserati 100 website. This week Alastair and the rest of the Maserati 100 will be honoured in a special reception in Mayfair, London.
Alastair is (we think!) the only leading lights selected from Northern Ireland, which is where Startacus HQ is based, so the recognition of being selected as one of the Maserati 100 is a great result not just for Alastair but the Startacus team and their growing global online community which continues to go from strength to strength.
Maserati know a thing or two about entrepreneurial spirit, having grown from the innovative efforts of Alfieri Maserati and his brothers 100 years ago! Their partnership with UK entrepreneurial think tank Centre for Entrepreneurs to award the Maserati 100 aimed to recognise the entrepreneurs who generously give their time and resources to support young founders.
Alastair gives his reaction to being included:
“I was of course delighted to be included in the Maserati 100. After being made redundant we experienced first hand some of the barriers that can face people when trying to start a business. We discovered how difficult it can be to find the right information, inspiration and support to take a business idea forward - big or small. We felt that there was a real need within the startup ecosystem for an online platform which offered a welcoming, all inclusive and most importantly inspirational and useful resource for self starters, startups and SMEs alike. Being recognised in this way, is a real shot in the arm to us, and will push us forward to continue delivering support, advice and inspiration to self starters, no matter who they are.”
Startacus has big ambitions both on and offline in 2015 and it’s wonderful to see credit given to Alastair, the Startacus team and most importantly, the Startacus community who have supported us along the way - we’d be nothing without ya!
