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 Street Photography Competition is now closed!

The successful winner will also gain lots of exposure through our Twitter and Facebook accounts. Follow us on Twitter to see if you're mentioned as our own weekly favourite entry! It's worth following Heather on Google+ too (the photographer of the image above).
Note - our Twitter mentions don't necessarily mean you've been shortlisted - our Judge Eric Kim will be choosing the winner, more info on him below...
Thank you to everyone that entered our Environment Photography Competition - as ever the standard of entries was exceptional and our judge Martin Bailey spent an agonising weekend judging them all for us.
So - the moment you've all been waiting for! The winner and honorable mentions are revealed in the video below:
Thanks to Pete Davies (AKA @petedaviesmusic) for providing the music.
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.

Thanks to everyone who entered our "My Home Town" photography competition, in the end we had around 220 entries and a really high standard. The time has come to announce the winning photograph, with a free Silicon Beach Training course here in Brighton for the photographer: the winner will be able to choose any one or two day course with Social Media Training, Photoshop Training, Wordpress Training or Advanced Excel Training in Brighton, Sussex, being just a few of the training courses on offer.
There's only one winner, but entries were so impressive that we've also featured the six shortlisted runners up. Thanks to our fantastic photographer judges Miss Aniela and Pete Barr Watson who kindly took the time to pick a winner, based on Originality, Interpretation of the Theme and Composition.
For those who missed out last time, see our current "Summer" photography competition with an amazing Photoshop workshop for the winner.
