Win 6 Months Free Office Space at MediaCityUK, Manchester with Orega

Orega have launched their #StartMeUp Pitch competition, aimed at supporting start-up businesses and entrepreneurs. Applicants have the chance to win 6 months of free office space in MediaCityUK, the dynamic waterfront destination of Manchester.

The #StartMeUp Pitch gives entrepreneurs and aspiring start-ups the opportunity to get the space they require in order for their business to grow and flourish. Orega will be giving the winner a fantastic 4-person office for 6 months at their MediaCity centre joining an eclectic mix of over 200 local and global businesses. Two runners up will receive a Blue Room Flexi Desk package for 6 months, giving them the perks of a desk in a collaborative, coworking environment.

To take part in the #StartMeUp Pitch, budding entrepreneurs need to send Orega a 60-second business pitch video. The challenge will be split into three phases. In the first round, Orega will shortlist the 10 best videos and then put them forward for a public vote online. The final stage will involve the top 5 candidates doing a face-to-face pitch to Orega’s judging panel where the final winner will be chosen.

Suzanne Machray, Head of Marketing at Orega said:

“Our vibrant MediaCityUK offices are the perfect location to give any new business the space it needs to help inspire growth and creativity.

We’re excited to see who will enter the #StartMeUp Pitch – we’re hoping to discover an amazing up-and-coming business that really deserves a helping hand from Orega.

There will be plenty of opportunities for publicity along the way thanks to the public voting element of the competition – we want to give the aspiring entrepreneurs a good boost whether or not they win one of the prizes.
