Dublin company CleverBooks is leading the poll for entries in the ‘Small Business’ category in this year’s Voom Pitch, Ireland and the UK’s largest pitching competition. The top 80 pitches from each category will go through to the semi-final heat in Manchester after the public voting round closes on May 15.
Start-ups or small to medium-sized businesses with an idea can apply for the competition until May 8. As well as a cash prize, entrants can win an out-of-home advertising campaign from JCDecaux and a first-stage funding programme from G by Grant Thornton.
Paul Farrell, Vice President of Commercial at Virgin Media said: “Voom Pitch is giving so many Irish businesses the chance to showcase their idea, location and elevate Ireland’s creative business sector. We really want to see an Irish company make it through to the finals and are asking the people of Ireland to vote for the company they think should get through. It is an amazing opportunity and past entrants will tell you that first hand.”
