Hey there, We have received some fantastic news, that we want to share with you. something which neither of us can believe has happened, however needless to say we are both thrilled about it.
On Thursday evening we received an email saying that we had been nominated for the Retail Business Everline Future 50 2014. Now for those of you who haven’t heard of the Future 50 before, this is their description in their own words:
“Real Business created the Future 50 project in 2011, to recognise the UK’s most exciting, most disruptive early-stage businesses.
The Future 50 is a nationwide programme to identify, celebrate and support the companies (and concepts) that will be the powerhouses of tomorrow. This is the most coveted accolade for early-stage UK businesses.”
So we have been invited down to the Future 50 party in February to hear the shortlist and for the ‘Future 50’ be announced. For us this is incredible. The site has been live for just 3 weeks, and so far the reception we have received is incredible. To be one of the nominees for the Real Business Future 50 is something else entirely.
To us it means that other people see the potential of what we are creating here, and truly believe that we can create not just something disruptive but something exciting for the future of business both in the UK and globally. We have no idea if we will make it in to the top 50, but for us we are already honored to be nominated at all.
It will be a great event down in London and a great opportunity to make other exciting new businesses. We just want to say thank you for everyone who is reading this and using UnderstandingE so far.
Your feedback has been incredible and invaluable. We took a punt back in September when we thought there may be an audience for what UnderstandingE would become, and thankfully we have been proven right.
Here’s to all of our future success,
Matt & Dave
