As well as giving away £1million in prizes, Virgin Media Busines VOOM is also looking for businesses that are excelling at crowdfunding their ventures.
In partnership with Crowdfunder, there’s an extra £50,000 up for grabs for businesses that exceed their fundraising targets. A winner will be chosen by Crowdfunder from the top five in the run up to the live Virgin Media Business VOOM finale on June 28th.
“Virgin Media Business VOOM 2016, powered by Crowdfunder, has been a huge win for many hundreds of our entrants, above and beyond the shortlist,” Jessica Ratty,marketing campaigns at Crowdfunder, says. “They've honed pitches, made videos and collectively contacted millions of people to promote their businesses.
“They've also participated in THE biggest mass crowdfunding campaign in UK history. Collectively, they've raised over £675,000 to make their ideas a reality.”
Crowdfunding has boomed in the last few years, with more and more start-ups getting off the ground thanks to the power of the crowd. Just like Mallow & Marsh.
