TMT First Ltd 2015 Start Up Tech Prize

And the award goes to… Blueprint Robotics!

Blueprint Robotics entered Stoke-on-Trent’s Start Up competition a while back.

‘The Start Up’ is a competition delivered by Youth Enterprise, BES and Stoke-on-Trent City Council and partners to award Stoke-on-Trent’s best and brightest entrepreneurs.

The [2015] competition [was] open to business start-ups that have been trading since September 2013 and to entrepreneurs with new business ideas that are looking to start in the near future.

The competition culminated in the finals evening last night (the 18 November, 2015) at The Kings Hall, Stoke, where Blueprint Robotics were one of the four short-listed applicants who pitched to a panel of judges live on stage.

Blueprint Robotics didn’t win the main prize unfortunately, but we did win the TMT First Ltd Innovation Space Tech Prize, which was given as a surprise extra award on the night.
