Voom competition goes public
8 April 2016 | 0
Online public voting for Virgin Media Business’ Voom competition has begun.
The competition gives entrepreneurs and SMEs the opportunity to pitch their ideas to Sir Richard Branson to win a slice of a prize fund worth over €1.2 million.
So far more than 40 Irish businesses have already applied from around Ireland. Some 160 businesses who receive the most public votes over the next seven weeks will take part in a ‘pitchathon’ in London on 1-2 June.
Gavan Smyth, VP of Virgin Media Business, said: “The response to Virgin Media Business Voom 2016 has been great so far. It’s now up to the businesses that have already applied to start ramping up the noise and getting those public votes.
“And it’s still open to people to enter. Whether you’re an entrepreneur with a great idea or an existing business that wants to get the boost you deserve, Voom 2016 is your chance to showcase your ideas.”
Public voting ends on 23 May. Applications are being accepted until 10 May at www.vmbvoom.com.
