Mission Alumni, ParcelGenie, in Metro & Venture Candy Competition


During my dreary morning commute this morning, I was flicking through the Metro only to stumble across a feature including UKTI Mission to SXSW Alumni, ParcelGenie.

A couple of months ago, Metro and Venture Candy launched a hunt for the new enterprises within the categories; Design & Technology, Food & Drink, Green, Health & Beauty and Fashion & Interiors.

Of the 1500+ entrants, seven in each category were grilled infront of a judging panel before the shortlists were cut to a final three; Bednest, ParcelGenie and TouchType.

Today, Metro readers are able to vote for their favourite by text, with lines closing at 11.59pm tonight.  You can also vote on Venture Candy's site til 11.59pm on Monday 25th July.
