Back in January our Founder, Lauren, presented a pitch presentation to a panel comprising of the Student Startup team from the University of Portsmouth and Santander Universities. We are happy to announce that the pitch was successful and she has secured Startup funding for Dyak Studios and Rise Of The Jemhaji!
Feedback from the panel said that the presentation was clear and they were impressed with Lauren’s presentation skills, so they invited her to speak to the next cohort of students about undertaking a SEP (more info on what a SEP is can be found here).
We’d like to thank both the Startup team and Santander Universities for awarding us this funding! It was a very competitive process (there were 100+ applications!) and we’re very proud of Lauren for securing the award for us. The money will be put towards the development of Rise Of The Jemhaji.
Last month we had a meeting with our Academic Mentor (if you want to know more about why we have one of those you can read this blog post) to discuss our milestones for the next couple months. We wanted to share those with you so you can know what we’ll be up to!
