The Winbox team cracked open the champagne last month after picking up yet another award from business accelerator Entrepreneurial Spark - and a cheque for £3,000 to invest in our growth.
We were handed the #GoDo prize at their latest awards night which recognises and rewards the most exciting and promising new business ventures.
Here at Winbox, we have bright ideas, oodles of creativity, a sound business plan and bags of enthusiasm.
But as a fresh and growing business, it’s always great to get some confirmation that you’re heading in the right direction.
Entrepreneurial Spark is the world’s largest free business accelerator for new and growing businesses. It identifies and supports entrepreneurs with promising ideas and the drive and commitment to make their business grow and thrive. They call this a #GoDo mindset.
By connecting individuals and ventures with mentors and ambassadors, as well as providing practical support via workshops and training on how to pitch ideas, the aim is to maximise investment potential and thus drive these small businesses forward.
Entrepreneurial Spark gave away £28,000 in prize money at the event, which brings together budding entrepreneurs with enablers and partners from the banking world to mark their achievements. The awards acknowledge the grit, determination, and can-do attitude of fledgeling ventures and the people who run them.
The #GoDo prize is a particularly fitting one for Winbox, given the passion and innovation we bring to the email marketing industry.
It’s awarded to “the entrepreneurs who take action, seek challenges and make every day count, delivering impressive results using a #GoDo mindset”.
That definitely sounds like us.
It’s the third time we’ve picked up a trophy from Entrepreneurial Spark - last year we won the Entrepreneur of the Moment award and we were handed the Office Choice award, which is nominated by fellow entrepreneurs. The latest win takes our total prize money from the programme to £15,000.
