Businesses with #VOOM
After 14 demanding weeks of all-out #VOOM, six finalists pitched live to our all-star panel: Richard Branson, Tyra Banks, Sara Blakely, Marcus Butler and Peter Kelly. It was up to them to select our winners.
Prizes were awarded to exceptional businesses in two categories. The first, Start-Up, was made for businesses in their earliest stages, looking for a leg-up. The second was Grow, a category designed to celebrate businesses who have already made their mark but need our help to get to the next level.
Up to 350Mbps for all. From £30 a month.
