As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have been lucky enough to be chosen to enter BODO in the Virgin #VOOM competition for startups and entrepreneurs. Through this competition BODO can obtain much needed funding and/or tips and advice from the very best people in the business depending on how well we do. If nothing else, it has proved a fascinating and insightful experience for me and I thoroughly enjoyed attending the pitch event a few weeks ago, I have already learnt some great things and met some very interesting people. But of course like the others, we are in it to win it and on Saturday 7th May my pitch for BODO entered in at position 687. After a few days of plugging the business across BODO’s various different websites and social media channels, as well as asking for support from friends and family who shared our pitch via Facebook and twitter, we made a huge leap up the rankings, making it to 155 in just 4 days. At the time of writing this, we are currently in 146 position, but I hope by the time you are reading this, we have climbed even further!
This post is basically asking for your help, if you read this blog, you probably fall into one of two categories, you are either a friend/loved one, or you are intrigued and interested in BODO and what the company hopes to achieve. I hope whatever group you fall into you will show your support for BODO by taking a few moments out of your day to click on the link and register your vote! You can register via LinkedIN or Facebook and it will literally take under a minute (I’ve timed it so I know). Those of you who are feeling particularly generous with your time/support then please feel free to share the link across your own social media platforms to help us to reach even more people and achieve our goals!
