Startup Britain

pitchup with johnlewis header

We’re delighted to be teaming up with John Lewis to offer unique access to their key buyers every six months.

The pilot project in October 2012 and second round in April 2013 uncovered a wealth of UK-based talent, and now John Lewis is looking for more great new British products. In 2014, John Lewis celebrates its 150th anniversary – could your design feature in the retailer’s anniversary product ranges and beyond?

Applications for the next round are now open, please apply here if you would like the chance to pitch to John Lewis buyers on the 27th of October 2013.

NB: Applications will close at midnight on the 18th of August.

You can read about how our last PitchUps went on our blog and take a look at a few photos on our Facebook page.

StartUp Britain teamed up with leading British supermarket Sainsbury’s to offer British food start-ups a tasty opportunity to pitch their products to top food buyers.

The event follows on from the campaign’s successful PitchUp with high street retailer John Lewis, which has seen over 400 start-ups compete for 12 places. Those chosen benefit from mentoring and practical guidance to develop in key areas including production, pricing and packaging.

The most promising ideas will be invited to pitch their products in August to representatives from StartUp Britain and Sainsbury’s, at Sainsbury’s food centre in Central London.

NB: The application stage is now closed and finalists will be notified shortly.

  1. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  2. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  6. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  7. Definitely imagine that that you said. Your favourite reason seemed to be at the net the easiest thing to take note of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while other
    people consider worries that they just don’t recognize
    about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest
    and also defined out the entire thing with no need side-effects ,
    people could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.
    Thank you

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  10. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  11. I drop a leave a response when I like a post on a site or if I have something to add to the discussion. It’s caused by the passion communicated in the article I browsed. And after this article. I was moved enough to drop a thought 😉 I do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be only me or does it look as if like a few of these remarks come across like written by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional sites, I’d like to keep up with you. Would you make a list all of all your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog? My website is in the very same niche as yours and my users would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Appreciate it!

And on this post. I was excited enough to leave a thought 🙂 I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it only me or do some of the responses appear as if they are left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I would like to follow you. Could you list every one of your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  14. I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while.

    I tend not to comment, however after looking at a few of the responses on this page. I do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay.

Could you make a list of every one of all your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  16. I rarely write comments, but I browsed a few remarks on. I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or do some of these remarks appear like they are left by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you post a list of the complete urls of all your social networking pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
