Startup Experts - we want you!!

Stop. Collaborate and Listen. Startacus is starting to generate some serious traffic and that’s fab. One of our main goals is to not only to have our finger on the pulse startup expertof what’s happening out there in ‘world startup’ - but to also be that pulse - we want to know about all the ‘what’s happenings’ of the startup and entrepreneurial scene - and that’s exactly why we’d love you guys to get involved.

Whether you’ve got a vested interest in the startup scene in your area, or you’re passionate about all things startup, we’d love to hear from you. Perhaps you’re an incubation expert, a startup champion, you work for an innovation hub, run an accelerator, or manage a coworking space. You might have lots of experience of starting businesses or you might still have the yearning to do just that.

What we’re looking for are people just like you to report on ‘what’s happening’ in the startup scene where you live. We want to hear all about the people, the places and spaces and the next big thing in your neck of the woods.

What are we looking for?

  • Minimum two posts / articles per calendar month

  • Newsworthy stories about startup ‘happenings’ where you live

  • All the local startup and creative events, conferences and meetups that are have happened or are going to happen

  • Startup success stories - be it via investment, crowdfunding joy, enterprises making a difference, awards, competition successes, the next big thing or local startups that are setting the regional, national or international world on fire

  • Any other local stories that you reckon the rest of the Startacus community should hear about

  • Articles of between 500 - 800 words long

Where are we looking?

Well quite frankly, all over the place! Looking at our little maps, we reckon we’d love to hear from Startup experts and champions from the following areas:


Northern Ireland



England: London, The South, East Anglia, The West Country, The Midlands, The North West, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, The North East

(Remember, this ain’t a definitive list so do forgive us if we haven’t listed your little corner of the world - and do let us know!)

What are we offering?

Well we can’t unfortunately provide any financial remuneration for your offerings, but we can offer you a platform to become the startup voice / champion / wizard for your local area. We can also offer the means to help you reach a growing community of people interested in all things startup, and a place for you to have a link to your own work - your own organisation or maybe even just your blog or Twitter account!   

So what now?

Well, if you’re interested in being a voice for all things creative and startup in your region, get in touch!

Email and add ‘Regional Writing’ in the subject box - outline what region you’d like to write about and also give us a little background on yourself too. Any links to your website or blog, or even LinkedIn profile would be great too.

So, the sooner you contact us - the sooner we can all get started! However, since it’s still holiday season and stuff though, we’ll give you a couple of weeks’ grace and we’ll be considering all enquiries and applications until 23rd August.

Once you’ve applied, we’ll do our best to get back to you as quickly as possible and we do hope that you respect any decision we make! We know we’ll not be able to please everyone, much as we’ll try!

So it’s over to you now - time to get writing!

Cheers in advance. I am Startacus!
