We did it!
A few weeks ago we had the (nerve-racking) pleasure to pitch for funding for The Style Edit as well as highly coveted place on the prestigious IgniteNI 2019 Pre-Accelerator programme and we’re delighted to announce that we got it!
The very thorough interview process meant that we had to prepare a pitch deck about The Style Edit and present it to four different panels made up of members of the Ignite and Invest Northern Ireland team. Following presentation of our pitch we spent the following fifteen minutes answering a series of challenging questions about the business, our goals for the future and how we plan to scale the business. In between all of the nerves and excitement, we were able to enjoy interesting conversations about the business with each of the panels, each table of interviewers offering very different perspectives.
Being part of the programme allows us to further build The Style Edit through funding and mentorship from Ignite’s very talented team. As of January, participating in the programme also affords us access to a city centre office space in Ormeau Baths.
With only twenty places available, we understand and appreciate that competition for a place on the programme was high and with that in mind we’d like to thank everyone at IgniteNI for the support and believing in The Style Edit enough to grant us such an exciting opportunity.
It wasn’t long ago that we were celebrating The Style Edit’s first birthday and now with the Ignite Propel Pre-Accelerator kicking off in January, we’re more determined than ever to grow The Style Edit, bring the business to the next level and continue to bring the most valuable content to our community. We can’t wait to get started and meet the rest of our #Propel19 cohort!
Bring on 2019!
