Jess Stephens, Managing Director at TagPoints blew away the judges to win the Silicon Beach Training Startup Competition in Brighton, Tues 22nd April 2014.
Competing against two other strong finalists in Sweta Chattopadhyay (Localfunded) and Jenni Macdonald (Precision Paraplanning), Jess gave a strong presentation highlighting the potential for TagPoints to grow which clearly impressed our judging panel; Darren Fell (Crunch), Caraline Brown (Midnight PR), Lisa Reynolds (Let Me Do That For You) & Mike Herd (Sussex Innovation Centre).
The judges were "blown away by the capability of the business and how fast it could scale" and while impressed by the other finalists, TagPoints were the clear winner on the day.
TagPoints now has the support of sponsors Silicon Beach Training, Crunch Accounting, Midnight PR and Clear Business Development to help grow the business and realise their ambitious plans.

The MetOffice warn us of another 5 days of snow and below freezing temperatures. The Brighton bus services are as precarious as the pavements, and you are the only one that actually made it into the office. Time to make the same excuse as everyone else, it's a “snow day”!
But don't hide at home. Instead, head to your nearest cosy café or pub with wifi and work from there. No excuse not to be online, Social Media is definitely not having a snow day. We provide SEO Training, Email Marketing Training, Google Anlaytics Training and Photoshop Training, in Brighton, Sussex - just some of the skills you could learn to keep you busy when you can't get out.
Here is a list of my favourite free wifi across the centre of Brighton, from Kemp Town to Hove. They all have a great laid back atmosphere that might make you want to stay for longer than planned.
Kemp Town Bookshop
Independent little gem of a bookshop with a cosy and quiet café on the top floor. Hot drinks, grilled sandwiches and a range of cakes will keep you feeling warm throughout the day.
91 St. George's Road, Kemp Town, BN2 1EE.
