Virgin Media is searching for innovative local businesses

Esther Hayden

Virgin Media Business is looking for Wexford's most innovative and exciting small and medium sized businesses.

Voom Pitch 2018 will support the UK and Ireland's most talented up and coming businesses and this year the competition will open up to more established small and medium sized businesses as well as to start-ups, with two entry categories: Scale and Grow and Spark and Start-up.

As well as the cash prize, entrants can win an out of home advertising campaign from JCDecaux and a first-stage funding programme from G by Grant Thornton. Additional awards and prizes from Voom Pitch 2018 partners, that will help winning businesses take things to the next level, will be unveiled shortly.

Paul Farrell, Vice President of Commercial at Virgin Media said: 'Voom Pitch is back with a bang and is open to Wexford entrepreneurs who have what they think it takes to make it to the final and pitch their business idea to Richard Branson for a share of the prize fund worth over €1.1million. We're looking for the most disruptive, original business ideas to bring to the table at this year's Voom Pitch competition and fly the flag for Ireland in what is one of the biggest pitching competitions of its kind.

'We've had strong representation in 2016 where seven of the top 40 companies in the competition came from Ireland, and we want to increase on that success this year.'
