Virgin StartUp-funded businesses on the Pitch to Rich shortlist!


Some of you might have heard of a competition our friends over at Virgin Media Business were running - Pitch to Rich, a once-in-a-lifetime chance for entrepreneurs all over the UK to pitch their business to Richard Branson himself. With almost 3,000 businesses throwing their hat into the ring, it's been a really exciting few weeks as the brightest and best businesses showed us what they're made of.

We're really thrilled to announce that the Pitch to Rich shortlist has now been announced - and two businesses that we've funded made the top 150 in the Startup category! Those two businesses are Hairport - a mobile blow-dry bar that's partnered with major hair brands such as Batiste - and Mini Nom Noms -  healthy and delicious world food for children.

We're super proud to see Virgin StartUp businesses make the shortlist amongst such tough competition; it's brilliant to see our businesses stand out, and we wish both Hairport and Mini Nom Noms all the best for the rest of Pitch to Rich. Voting reopens next week for the next stage - stay tuned!
