StepJockey through to live 29-hour pitchathon for #VirginVoom

We’re super excited to announce, that following a huge public vote, StepJockey has been shortlisted to the final 80 businesses in the prestigious Virgin Voom competition beating thousands of other entries.

The competition, organised by Virgin Media, offers up the chance for businesses to pitch to Richard Branson and win a share of £1 million in business prizes.

Following the public vote, StepJockey is now through to the next stage of the competition which sees all the shortlisted businesses compete in a live-streamed 29-hour pitchathon to narrow down the entries to just 40 businesses.

Each business is given just three minutes to pitch their concept to a crack panel of business experts. The live pitchathon will take place on Wednesday 1 and Thursday 2 June in London and also aims to set a brand new Guinness World Record for the most back-to-back pitches.

If chosen, StepJockey will go to the final round of selection in face-to-face competitive workshops taking place in Birmingham on 13-14 June. The last six businesses standing will then be able to pitch to Richard Branson.
