Silver Fin office space up for grabs in new competition for start-ups

A new competition to win six months’ free office space at Aberdeen’s prestigious Silver Fin Building is giving entrants the chance to get their business off to a flying start.

The #StartMeUp Pitch, organised by serviced office provider Orega, invites start-up businesses and entrepreneurs to write a short business pitch and submit it via the Orega website by 10 November 2017. Orega will then review the entries and invite their five favourites to pitch face-to-face for the prize.

Orega’s lucky winner will receive their own four-person office worth £10,000 at Orega Aberdeen. The prize is for six months and includes business broadband, a phone and the support service the business needs to grow.

Two runners-up will each receive a Virtual Office package at Orega Aberdeen for six months.

The competition follows on from the success of Orega’s first #StartMeUp Pitch, which took place in Manchester earlier this year and saw entrants going head-to-head to win an office at Orega MediaCity.

Suzanne Machray, Head of Marketing at Orega, said: “The #StartMeUp Pitch marks the launch of our first Scottish centre, and we’re excited to see who will enter – we’re hoping to discover an amazing up-and-coming business that really deserves a helping hand.

“The Silver Fin Building is a fantastic facility with a stunning atrium, plenty of space and state-of-the-art meeting rooms, as well as relaxing breakout areas.

“Being in a business environment that’s sure to impress can really make a difference. So if you think you have what it takes, then we’d love to hear from you!”

Full information on how to enter the #StartMeUp Pitch, including terms and conditions, can be found on Orega’s website at https://info.orega.com/startmeup-pitch.

The closing date for competition entries is 10 November 2017, with pitches taking place later in the month.
