We are extremely excited to announce that PRCA have generously donated a cash prize as part of a bundle of other goodies for the winners of the Hackney Startup Tour. Founded in 1969, the PRCA is the largest PR association in Europe, representing 18,000 people in agencies, in-house communications teams, and individuals.
As part of Digital Shoreditch the tour takes investors on a journey round Shoreditch to some of the best and brightest workspaces and gives startups the opportunity to deliver their most dynamic pitches. Everyone on the tour then votes for their favourite whilst enjoying some local refreshments and an outright winner is selected to receive the following prizes:
-£500 cash prize courtesy of the PRCA
-A special media / communications workshop with some of the brightest talent in the communications industry including Head of Media & Entertainment from Ogilvy PR, Blair Metcalfe and Waggener Edstrom EMEA Creative Director, Nick Woods
- Two tickets to Thursday’s CONNECT day at Digital Shoreditch, where the winner will be announced by Cllr Guy Nicholson, Cabinet Member for Regeneration at Hackney Council
-Two tickets to Friday’s LIVE day at Digital Shoreditch
The tour takes place on Tuesday 12th May from 5pm and will end at the Yelp/Xander Alexander's Mad Scientist Soirée! There are three tour groups, and we'll be visiting the workspaces LAUNCH22, Trampery Old St, TechHub Shoreditch, Central Working, Runway East and The Brew.
