Feedback From The Judges



Kat Wellum-Kent, Founder of Fractional Finance

“A common thread running through all the entries was innovation, whether it was a totally new idea, or bringing a new perspective to a traditional offering. I was really impressed by the creative thinking which has led to each entrant building a successful business that is doing something different.”

Namrata Sandhu, CEO and Co-Founder at Vaayu

“This year’s entrants were a great representation of entrepreneurship and passion with out-of-the-box companies being built to target vital areas such as social mobility and environmental impact. I was especially impressed by OloBird which is working to create a more transparent solution to the fashion industry’s sourcing opportunities, and WAC for empowering workers’ rights and equal pay. Congratulations to all entrants, I really enjoyed seeing such diversity and scope in this category.”
