Virgin Founder Sir Richard Branson announced the winners of Voom 2018 – the UK and Ireland’s biggest business pitching competition.
Each of the two main winners will take home a share of the £1million prize pot including a five figure cash prize, an advertising campaign and an extensive package of mentoring and services to help them accelerate and grow their business.
• Junior Einsteins, the science club inspiring children through hands on activities, was the winner in the Spark & Start category for startup companies
• Therapy Box, a business using AI to diagnose hidden communication disabilities, won the Scale and Grow category for more established small and medium sized businesses
Sir Mo Farah, the UK’s most successful distance runner ever and Director of Going the Extra Mile at Virgin Media, joined Sir Richard Branson on the stage to give Heroes4Hire a special award for the business that has shown the same levels of dedication, determination and tenacity that have taken him to the very top of world sport.
Heroes4Hire recruits, trains and fully employs former service personnel to help them find work after leaving the armed services.
Peter Kelly, MD at Virgin Media Business said: “Congratulations to today’s worthy winners: These dynamic businesses symbolise the vitality and potential of start-ups and small businesses that Voom is helping to unleash. We wish all of our finalists the best of luck for the future.”
The Spark & Start category was won by trained scientist and mum of three young children, Tracey-Jane Cassidy, who set up Junior Einsteins after being frustrated that her own children weren’t getting enough of an opportunity to do hands-on science.
Working to encourage more diversity and interest in STEM subjects, Junior Einsteins arrange after-school clubs, summer camps, birthday parties and events to promote creative thinking, teamwork, imagination and problem-solving abilities.
Therapy box, a London-based SME using machine learning to diagnose, treat and support people with hidden communication disabilities walked away as winners in the Scale & Grow category. Their app listens to children speak and helps identify those who may have hidden disabilities which are holding them back. Speaking at the final, founder Rebecca Bright MBE explained how their apps have already saved the NHS over £6 million.
Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Group Founder, said: “I’m blown away by the quality of the pitches and the incredible passion the finalists have demonstrated. Congratulations to the fantastic winners and to our runners up who worked extremely hard to get here. I hope they’ll go on to inspire others - I’m excited to watch them all continue their journey business.”
Four special award winners were also named at the ceremony by Voom partners.
• Hookpod, a sustainable fishing hook which reduces the number of turtles and birds accidentally caught by tuna fishing boats, won the The Crowdfunder Award for the business that crowdfunds the most money during Voom, having raised nearly £60,000.
• Organic Blooms, the social enterprise that grows and sells organic flowers to train and support people with learning difficulties, won the Impact Award, sponsored by Virgin Unite, for the charity, business, or social enterprise that’s making a difference to people in need.
• The International Voom Award, sponsored by PayPal, for the business with the biggest international ambitions was won by Milky Tees – a company producing unique breast-feeding T-shirts to help mums breastfeed easily, discreetly and stylishly.
• Perlego, the textbook subscription service making academic content more affordable, was announced as the winner of the Leaders with Voom Award, sponsored by Grant Thornton, which will support them with first-stage funding advice.
Since launching six years ago, the competition – run by Virgin Media Business - has awarded over £2 million in prizes and has supported hundreds of businesses including CauliRice, MacRebur, Fourex, Biobean, What a Melon and Approved Foods to go on to great success. Previous winners have benefited from increased public awareness and new connections, partnerships and collaborations they’ve built through the competition.
