If you’re looking for encouragement, you will be inspired by this must-see film that talks to three Virgin Media Business Pitch to Rich 2015 winners about their idea – from dreams to reality. It is filled with valuable lessons and will surely inspire and encourage the entrepreneur-minded out there to take a leap.
What does it take to make the leap? In the film, the Pitch to Rich winners talk about the importance of drive, passion, backing and developing courage to make that leap from employee to entrepreneur. The film features Dan Cluderay talking about launching Approved Food after being made redundant, Andrew Hunt describing the leap of faith he needed to leave a successful career in London and launch Aduna in The Gambia, and Gem Misa who worked her way up in the corporate world of marketing and brand management at Unilever before setting up Cauli-Rice.
Virgin Media Business’ Pitch to Rich competition is back in 2016, promising to be bigger and better than ever. This nationwide competition aims to find the brightest and best start-ups in the UK and give them the backing to be the best they can be – with support in the form of prizes, publicity and alumni winners’ secrets of success.
