Blueprint Robotics entered Stoke-on-Trent’s Start Up competition a while back.
The  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.
TMT is a leading supplier of tailored services for the electronic devices market including mobile phones, laptops and games consoles. [They] are an independent business working in harmony with manufacturers, distributors, retailers and network providers throughout the world, adding value and reducing costs.
The award and prize itself consists of three month’s free office space with office furniture and high speed broadband included, business mentoring, and potential future investment!
We’d like to thank TMT First for the award, and extend our congratulations to the other winners.
We intend to do big and great things here at Blueprint Robotics, so watch this space!
