Get ready for our Start-up September Competition

By Anita Jaynes on August 08, 2015

Returning for its second year we launch our 2015 Start-up September competition on Tuesday September 1.

Last September to celebrate The Business Exchange’s first birthday, we came up with the idea to help other new businesses in the county get on their way to achieving their goals.

Each day of the month (1-30 September) we will be raffling a prize on Twitter. The competition is aimed at Wiltshire firms that have started out in the last two years, with the idea of supporting them with services and products that they might not be able to afford, but would add real value to their business.

Start-ups should follow us on Twitter @tbesw and tweet us with the hashtag #Iwanttowin.  All participants will be entered into the draw which will be made at 8pm each day.

If you can think of anyone that Start-up September would benefit spread the word.

Listed below is the fantastic selection of prizes that have been donated by more established Wiltshire firms. If there is something that would be of real benefit to your business, set an alarm in your diary now to ensure you enter on the day and are in with a chance of winning.

Full prize details will be shared closer to the competition start date. Thank you to all of our prize givers and good luck to everyone who enters.
