It’s been a busy three years for Virgin StartUp, and for the startup landscape in general. In a short space of time, small businesses have well and truly proven themselves as the force driving the recovering UK economy.

We’re thrilled to have been a part of this, watching an amazing 1,441 entrepreneurs receive support from us, and knowing that each loan doesn’t just mean one person following their dream – it means a business, job creation, and growth.

We commissioned the following infographic - created by Virgin StartUp-supported business Craig Dean Studio - with some of the things we are proudest of achieving over the last three years. A huge shout out to the businesses and partners who have helped make all this happen. Click here to view larger.
