We're crowdfunding #VOOM, the UK and Ireland's biggest and most valuable pitch competition.

Fourteen weeks of furious competition, including a huge public vote and an explosion of crowdfunding, a 29-hour Pitchathon, an attempt at a world record and a live finale like no other.

We powered the lot, and our five Crowdfunder finalists came face-to-face with our Founder Rob Love and partners at Virgin Media Business, Virgin Media Start-Up, JCDecaux and Xero for the chance to bag £50,000, with What A Melon winning the prize pot.

Now there’s a grand up for grabs each week, for 10 weeks, available to crowdfunding start-up and growth businesses that grab the attention of our expert panel. Are you ready to #VOOM?


The benefits of crowdfunding go way beyond the money. It brings market validation, access to new investors, promotion, community exposure, and real-time feedback.
