We are proud to announce that we have been accepted into stage 1 of O2 Telefonica’s Think Big project. The project was created by Telefonica in order to help small projects take off and positively impact their communities.
One thing we have noticed since starting up in Liverpool last year is that there is a really big and welcoming tech community. We have met a number of great entrepreneurs and inspiring talkers, all of which have been really sociable and interesting. We like the fact that our company is growing in a community which is not too large as to be intimidating, while not being too small to not be diverse.
We think that these conditions which we have found ourselves in are optimal for growing a small business. As a result, we like to do what we can in order to help other small business owners, especially those embarking on big journeys, which may seem impossible to anyone else. We have worked with bmicro, which is a marketing consultancy for micro businesses, in order to provide premium websites to small businesses for a low price.
With all of this combined, we have decided to use the funding we will receive from the Think Big project to hold small community events for other young people in order to increase their awareness online, and to potentially help them with starting their own businesses in the future.
