#DigiDen shortlist announced

Last month we announced an fantastic opportunity for groups looking for support to get a platform co-op off the ground – with a £2,000 start-up funding and five days of support on offer to the winning applicant.

We called for ideas to be pitched to #DigiDen, a competition in partnership with The Hive – the business support programme from Co-operatives UK and The Co-operative Bank – and The Open Co-op.

We're pleased to announce the shortlisted entries, which have been invited to pitch to a ‘dragons den’ style expert panel in front of an audience at OPEN:2017, the UK’s multi-day conference dedicated to platform co-operatives in London. The conference takes place 16-17 February 2017 and the #DigiDen pitches take place on 17 February.

We look forward to hearing your pitches in London on 17 February!

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all groups who entered the #DigiDen competition.
