Northampton -based DMCFinder has been named one of the most exciting new businesses in
the region after being shortlisted as part of a brand new awards programme.
The StartUp Awards National Series has been launched to recognise the booming startup scene
across the UK which has accelerated since the pandemic began. In 2020, when most of the
world was shutting down, more than 400,000 startups were set up in Britain, with similar
increases seen in other European countries.
There was stiff competition with over 2,500 applications received in response to the Startup
Awards National Series’ first-ever call for entries.
Jo Joshi, Founder of DMCFinder said: We are delighted to be nominated for this award. For the
last 18 months we have worked extremely hard and diligently to get the DMCFinder brand out in
Supported nationally by BT, EY, Dell & Intel, the programme will celebrate the achievements of
the amazing individuals across the UK who have turned an idea into an opportunity and taken
the risk to launch a new product or service.
Co-founded by the team behind the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, the new series follows
the success of the Wales StartUp Awards, after organisers recognised the exceptional potential
in the startup scene across the other British regions.
Professor Dylan Jones-Evans OBE, the creator of the StartUp Awards National Series, said:
“New firms are important for generating economic prosperity, employment opportunities and
innovation. Since 2016, the Wales StartUp Awards have celebrated this amazing annual
contribution to our economy by entrepreneurs and the impact they have on communities across
“Given the sheer volume of phenomenal startups we’ve heard from since then, as well as the
huge post-pandemic shift in people’s desires to take their career in a new direction and set up a
business against the odds, we felt it was the right time to take the programme nationwide.
We’ve been blown away by the standard of entries in this first year and truly look forward to
crowning the winners in June.”
The aim of the platform is to support DMC’s, Venues and Tour Operators back on the Fast Track
road to recovery, by connecting them to event organisers around the world on one platform.
We are trying to make the platform easy, innovative and dynamic to use for both the event
organisers and suppliers.
The aim is to ensure that event organisers are able to connect with reliable and reputable
DMC’s and suppliers all over the world on one platform.
