Santander Entrepreneurship Awards – 2nd place
We are so excited to share this news with you – last week Bird Sunglasses came 2nd in the National Santander Entrepreneurship Awards, beating over 2000 other entries! That’s flocking amazing!
The final involved a nail-biting pitch to a Dragons Den style line up of judges, including the CEO of Santander bank, and it was an honour to compete against some other fantastic new businesses.
The awards are one of the UK’s largest student and graduate business competitions. Our prize includes seed funding, business advice and support from Santander and Talent Cupboard, a fully funded intern, and a Microsoft Surface Pro thrown in for good measure. This is a huge boost to us as we continue to grow in the coming months.
Now it’s time to pause, reflect and take a big breath as we take our next steps. Our vision is a strong as ever – creating beautiful sunglasses that help to create clean solar energy, designed for people who want to change the world and look good while doing it.
As always, thanks for all your support, we couldn’t do it without you. Keep on adventuring!
