Blenheim Startup Competition 2019

We're offering entrepreneurs and startup businesses a unique opportunity.

Thank you for all applicants, the deadline is now closed.

Working in partnership with the FAB Accelerator team we have launched our second startup competition to encourage local entrepreneurs and startup businesses the opportunity to come and pitch to our senior team, and the best pitch will win a 1-year contract to supply our retail outlet.

In 2018, after hearing from all eight finalists we decided to support two different small businesses; Neve’s Bees, which produces 100% natural beeswax skin care products, and designer and artist Kathryn Croxson, who creates a range of clothing accessories and homeware.
