Can you sponsor our Start-up September Competition?

By Anita Jaynes on 27 June, 2017

This September for the fourth year in a row we will be running our annual Start-up September competition, helping new businesses in the county establish their ventures.

Each day of the month 1-30 September we will be raffling a prize on Twitter. This will be advertised in print (Aug/Sept edition of TBE) , online at and via our social media feeds.

The competition is aimed at firms who have started out in the last two years, with the idea to support them with services and products that they might not be able to afford, but would add real value to the business. Examples of last year’s prizes include:

-Complimentary business plan

-Free meeting room hire

-A year’s free membership of Kashflow

-Two hour sales strategy session

-Free migration to Microsoft 365

-Free logo design

-Complimentary SEO web audit

-Voucher for office furniture

-Business coaching session

-Two hour PR strategy session

-Free business card design and printing

The idea is that by taking part you will form great relationships with the winners, who will go on to be your clients.

If you would like to take part it is £50+VAT for the PR around the competition.

Last year our competition raised £10,462 worth of prizes that directly benefitted businesses in Swindon & Wiltshire. Something we’re really proud of!
