National Start-Up’s Day celebrates the UK’s flourishing start-up community for a third consecutive year on the 22nd October 2018.
Established in 2016, the #NationalStartupsDay campaign builds on the success of the past two years; last year, on Twitter the hashtag trended across the UK, generating hundreds of thousands of impressions while top brands, entrepreneurs and organisations gave their support to the campaign through social media engagement.
The event is designed to showcase exciting and innovative start-ups, while connecting start-up founders with advice and materials to help them succeed in business.
Supporters in previous years include the FSB, Dragons’ Den star Jenny Campbell, Margot James, Tech Nation, and Startup Bootcamp, while the message was also spread overseas with the French Embassy and the US economic development administration sharing their support.
All those involved in business, from start-ups to larger businesses with valuable advice for those starting out, are encouraged to get involved with the campaign and spread the word by sharing the hashtag #NationalStartupsDay and #PeoplesChampion on Monday 22 October 2018.
Organisers will be generating awareness of the UK’s most promising and innovative early-stage small businesses by showcasing profiles of over 70 inspiring start-ups in the running for #PeoplesChampion nominations for the Startups Awards 2018.
Readers and start-up peers will get the chance to vote for the companies they deem to be most deserving of the People’s Champion title, with the winner set to be revealed at the Startups Awards 2018 ceremony on Wednesday 21 November.
They will also be sharing a host of dedicated free advice, guides and materials across our social media accounts – on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook – to support start-ups and encourage the next generation of entrepreneurs.
