Semi-finalist in Santander Entrepreneurship Awards

bearhugs Faye savoury Santander university entrepreneurship awards

At the end of last month, I was incredibly proud to represent the University of Sheffield at the Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards in Newcastle in the post-revenue category. It was lovely to go along with fellow University of Sheffield supported business Exyo who were in the pre-revenue category.

It was a privilege to be selected as a semi-finalist from over 2000 businesses that applied. Although BearHugs won't be going through to the final, it was fantastic to have the opportunity to pitch alongside some seriously inspiring up-and-coming businesses who I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more of in the not so distant future!
