Virgin StartUp Christmas Fair 2015
NOTE: entries are now closed. Chosen businesses will be contacted the week commencing 02/11/15.
We're really excited to announce that we're looking for the best VSU-funded businesses to trade at our 2015 Virgin StartUp Christmas Fair, held at the Virgin Management offices.
Last year we decided that we wanted to bring together some of the many amazing businesses we've funded, celebrate what they do, and give them the unique opportunity to trade at Virgin headquarters in London as part of our very first Virgin StartUp Christmas Fair.
It was such a success that - now the wind is turning chilly, the nights are drawing in, and Hallowe'en is just around the corner - our thoughts are turning back to doing it all over again. And if you're a Virgin StartUp-funded business eager to take part, we want to hear from you.
We're looking for businesses trading at a range of price points, from stocking-fillers to showstoppers. Whether you're unique, traditional, a business that's been with us from the start or one just starting out, the key thing is that you have a product which would be someone's perfect gift.
The Christmas Fair will be held at the Virgin Management headquarters in Paddington in late November (date tbc), where over a hundred Virgin staff work. We'll also be inviting Virgin StartUp mentors and business advisors, so you can meet the team behind our successful startups, as well as giving staff from other Virgin companies the opportunity to attend. There'll be mulled wine and mince pies galore, and you'll have the honour of kicking off the Virgin Management festive events season.
However, more important than the opportunity to sell is the chance to get face to face with members of the Virgin team, show us how far you've come since receiving your loan, tell your story and celebrate getting your business up and running. We're really excited about all the fantastic businesses we've funded, and can't wait for others in the Virgin family to get to know you better.
Interested in applying? Just fill out the form below telling us why you'd be perfect to trade at the fair by 30th October . Good luck!
