The winners of Newfound's Go-No-Go competition have been decided - and we are very excited to be sharing the news with you.
The competition, which ran over the summer, was devised to highlight Newfound’s new Go-No-Go in 90 days programme, created to help companies validate their UK market entry plans. The winner will receive £25,000 of support to help its expansion into the UK market.
Entries to the competition were judged by a UK panel of leading advisers, investors and B2B experts.
In their entries, ventures needed to show that they have:
achieved commercial success in their local market
a clear product roadmap
a product with global scalability
readiness to expand their business.
With more than 30 applications from global B2B SaaS businesses, we were very impressed by the overall quality and potential of most of them. All winners and runners up demonstrated that they met the criteria above — with the winner being the one that judges felt would derive the most value from research to inform their go/no-go decision.
We would like to extend a big congratulations to all winners and thanks to everyone that applied.
