The nights are drawing in, there’s a chill in the air, and December is almost upon us. That means it’s time to get properly festive – that’s right, the third Virgin StartUp Christmas Fair is imminent!
Last year we brought together 10 incredible businesses to sell their wares, drink mulled wine, and make merry. Now we’re once more on the lookout for Virgin StartUp-supported businesses that sell the best small gifts and stocking fillers.
The fair will be held at the Virgin Management headquarters in Paddington, where over 100 members of Virgin staff work, on the afternoon of Tuesday, December 6th. As well of employees of the building, we’ll be inviting Virgin StartUp business advisors, mentors, and representatives from other Virgin companies. It’s a great chance to meet the people behind Virgin StartUp, as well as to soak up the Christmas vibes and showcase your wares.
So, what kind of businesses are we looking for? Whether you’re just starting out or a bit more established, we’re looking for products that could make a perfect gift – the kind of thing that you’d love to find in your stocking on Christmas day. Ideally we’re looking for price points of below £30, in order to get the most business for you. However if you have a pricier product that you think would be a huge hit, please do feel free to throw your hat into the ring. There is also extremely limited parking at the venue, so please bear this in mind.
Interested in applying? Fill out the form below telling us more about your business, and why you’d be perfect to trade at the fair. Entries will close at midday on Friday 25th November, and we’ll be contacting the successful applicants on Monday 28th.
Please note that you must be a Virgin StartUp business to be eligible. If you'd like to apply for a Virgin StartUp loan and have access to other awesome opportunities like this one, register here.
