What’s it all about?
In case you missed it… everyone who uploaded a pitch into Virgin Media Business‘s VOOM comp has the opportunity to “Carry on Crowdfunding” – which is brilliant news as it just keeps the VOOM coming for all the businesses across the UK looking to make their brilliant ideas a reality.
Every Friday, the five who raise the most money will be considered by a panel from Virgin Media Business and Crowdfunder for that week’s prize.
The VOOM Crowdfunder “Pick of the Week” will run for 10 weeks — until 12th August. That’s ten shots at a £1,000 cash injection for YOUR business.
