Our customers are nothing short of remarkable - we're constantly amazed at the fantastic products they make and sell, the way they go above and beyond to deliver delight to their own customers, or the charitable work they do. That's why we've over $35,000 to give away to our most inspiring and unique customers in the 2013 MOO Awards.
The 2013 MOO Awards are now closed for entries.
To enter the competition, you must:
Before you submit your entry, you may want to think about:
It's fair to say that not many people have “founder of a business” as their first job, so we’d like to hear about what you did before you set up your own business. Why did you decide to do something different? Why choose to take the steps leading to the all important “I’m starting a business!” plunge?
Perhaps you had an unexpected encounter that sparked the “eureka” moment to start your business, or perhaps it was a memorable conversation with someone in your life - or an incident that changed your perspective? Whatever the story is, we want all the juicy details.
Of course we want to hear your success story – but we also want to hear all about your setbacks. Adversity is what builds character both in business and out of it, so we’d like to hear about any challenges and how you overcame them.
We’re looking for businesses that can show us passion and ambition, imagination and determination, but above all we're looking for something different. We want to know what makes your business unique - why do you stand out from the crowd?
This is the big one. From all the entries we receive we’ll pick one winner who exemplifies all the qualities we’re looking for, with just a little dash of something extra! You'll win: * $11,000 cash to spend on your business * $1,500 MOOlah to spend on moo.com * An article in the MOOsLETTER * Plus the chance to meet the MOO Award judges and VC companies to get feedback and advice on your business (and how to spend your winnings)!
The most original, eye-catching and innovative product will win: * $8,000 cash to spend on your business * $1,500 MOOlah to spend on moo.com * An article featured in the MOOsLETTER
The most different and delightful service based business will win: * $8,000 cash to spend on your business * $1,500 MOOlah to spend on moo.com * An article featured in the MOOsLETTER
The most forward-thinking and unique charity or non-profit will win: * $8,000 cash to spend on your business * $1,500 MOOlah to spend on moo.com * An article featured in the MOOsLETTER
What’s a prize without a trophy for your mantelpiece? Plus, all the winners will be invited to receive their trophies and to meet the judges at the MOO Small Business Conference early next year in the UK.
