Launched this year in April, the Startacus Self Starter Awards aims to recognise the work of early stage self starter / entrepreneur / startup folk.

Yep, people probably just like you - who are demonstrating that they’re doing something of note with that big or small idea that they have! So far we have had some fab weekly winners, who hopefully at the end of 2014 will all be in with a chance to win the Self Starter of the Year title and prizes! Last years winner has just gone on to bag 60k of investment on the Dragon's Den, so hopefully like us, you see these awards as valuable stepping stones to business greatness! 

First launched last year, with the help of lead sponsor Marketest, we celebrated and awarded some of the stand out Startacus members with a weekly Self Self Starters 2013Starter of the Week title. This all accumulated in an end of year pitch off, where the successful weekly Self Starters competed on why they should be awarded the Startacus Self Starter of the Year award itself.

Of course you can read all about last year’s Self Starter of the Year in more detail, however in short, the acclaimed title for 2013 was won by Jennifer Duthie, Founder of Skribbies - who not only won the accolade but also won £1k of consumer market research from the fab Marketest.

Self StarterThis year’s awards aim to build upon the success of last year’s weekly and end of year winners and like any good sequel, aim to pack an extra punch, giving our weekly winners that special effect, and offering a more explosive and rewarding finale...aka prizes…

And alongside the £1k consumer market research prize that Marketest are again offering up for the Yearly winner, we have some other rather fab goodies that you can win!
