Startacus members through to The Pitch top 100!
by Startacus Admin
We must take a little moment now to say a big congratulations, good luck and general woohoo to a bunch of very special startups who have made it through to the final 100 of The Pitch.
We are especially happy that these guys have made it through because they are people who have a connection to the Startacus community and therefore stand as a great inspiration to anyone who pays us a visit looking for some encouragement.
The Fabulous Four
Lowdown- a meeting organising app which collates information about attendees from a wide range of online sources and presents it to you in a simple way. Check out out this interview we did with them a couple of months ago.
Flavourly- Which was a startup of the week last year - it’s an all new subscription service which delivers a box filled with delicious gourmet goodies to your door every month.
Rainy Day Box Company - Founded by a Startacus Self Starter of the Week Ally Cranston, this is a box of unique games, toys and activities for children (and their parents) to enjoy on rainy British days! Ally recently shared her self starter story with us.
Packed Munches - Founded by our pal, and Self Starter of the Week Fiona Timba, this is an online subscription service that sends monthly boxes of British food to expats across the world. For more info check out our recent interview with her!
Well done on getting this far and good luck with the rest of the competition!
The Pitch is now in its 7th year, having grown from modest beginnings as a local event in the South West of England into the UK’s largest and most widely accessible of its kind. For the next stage of the competition the final 100 will be invited to attend a boot camp in either London or Manchester after which 30 finalists will be invited to compete for the ultimate title in The Pitch’s home town of Bristol in October.
For more information on the Pitch, you might like to take a look at our recent interview with its founder or take a look at some of the other top 100 startups who’ve made the cut.
