Virgin StartUp is three years old. We’ve helped thousands of businesses start up, providing them with funding and support, and we’re so excited to help even more startups come into the world.

So what better way to celebrate than with a party featuring our brilliant businesses? Food, drink and entertainment was provided by Virgin StartUp-supported businesses – even the event invitations were created by Craig Dean of Craig Dean Studio.

A huge thank you to everyone who came along – it was an evening of celebration, cocktails, cake, and even a cheeky #mannequinchallenge.

And a huge thank you too to our startups who made the evening amazing! Food and drink was provided by:

Change Please

Normally running coffee carts around the capital, but serving us delicious espresso martinis instead, Change Please helps those without homes to get off the street by providing them with training and a job.

Casso Cocktails

Casso Cocktails sell a range of delightful ready-mixed cocktails in jars. All you have to do is add ice and shake.

Saint Aymes

Eat it or frame it? That’s the dilemma when it comes to Saint Aymes, creators of luxury ‘edible art’ chocolate.

Mix and Muddle

Mix and Muddle provide awesome cocktails and mixology services for events – they even whipped up two custom Virgin StartUp cocktails for us.

Casso Cocktails

Harry Brompton’s Iced Tea

Coming in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions, Harry Brompton's puts British twist on an American classic. It's proved a hit, finding its way into major retailers such as Waitrose and winning Virgin StartUp Foodpreneur Fest 2016.

Change Please - 3rd Birthday Party


Another Foodpreneur winner, Claw sell delicious crab burgers at markets and pop-ups.

Love Corn

Forget popcorn –it’s all about the roast corn. These savoury snacks are incredibly moreish, with flavours such as BBQ and habanero.

That’s not all - in the beauty lounge you could relax and get your nails done courtesy of Imarni Nails, nail artist to celebrities including Lily Allen and FKA Twigs.

Thank you to everyone who's joined us on the journey so far. Here's to supporting even more startups in the future!
