Twelve Irish entrants are currently in the top 80 start-ups vying to become finalists in the overall Virgin Media Voom 2016 Pitchathon and 2 of these are in the Top 10 ranking, with the public vote still ongoing and about to close next Monday 23rd May.

Anyone who wants to support these and other Irish entrants should get onto www.vmbvoom.com asap to vote for their favourite candidates. By casting a vote, you can help to determine who goes through to a pitchathon which will take place over 29 hours from 1-2 June, as part of Richard Branson’s business boosting VOOM 2016 competition.

After the Pitchathon, a final shortlist of candidates will get to pitch to Richard Branson directly.

The Irish entries are posted under two categories which companies have applied to; Start-Up and Grow. The ‘Start-Up’ category is for fresh and exciting businesses that are still in the early stages of development. The ‘Grow’ competition is for businesses that are already recording revenues but are looking to ramp things up.

Almost 200 Irish businesses have entered the competition overall. Here are the current Top Irish entrants, with public voting still open.
