RBSEnterprisingU

On July 17th, the final for the inaugural RBSEnterprisingU competition was held in central London.

SalesGossip, a service that alerts bargain hunters immediately when a new sale is announced, won the top prize of £25,000.

"We’re proud to have won, especially considering the very high calibre of the other start-ups shortlisted…Of course, we would love to spend the money shopping for shoes in the summer sales but alas we’ve got bigger and better plans and will spend it on building more functionality into the current online and mobile service."

Elisabetta Camilleri, co-founder SalesGossip

Peter Ibbetson, RBS Chairman for Small Business, was on the judging panel along with a Dylan Williams of Coutts and publisher Rupert Turnball.

"All of the finalists have great potential and the RBSEnterprisingU provides them with a platform to showcase their business ideas, win cash and attract investment as well as develop the skills required to be a successful business founder."
