“Pitching in the Dragoness’ Den was a great challenge and a rewarding experience in itself. The feedback that I received has already helped me to continue developing Rockallwight PR.”
The founder of a new PR start-up, that supports innovative SME’s in Gloucestershire and beyond, is starting 2019 on a high note, after winning £8,000-worth of business support. Claire Cunningham, from Cirencester, pitched her new business Rockallwight PR to judges in a Dragoness’ Den competition, run by the Women’s Business Club.
Claire, a member of the Cheltenham club, pitched in two rounds, culminating in a presentation to a packed audience at the Maximise Conference in Cheltenham on December 5. She said: “Our new start-up is less than a year old and this is a huge achievement and a memorable business milestone. Pitching in the Dragoness’ Den was a great challenge and a rewarding experience in itself. The feedback that I received has already helped me to continue developing Rockallwight PR.
“I couldn’t have won without the practical and moral support of my peers at the Women’s Business Club and I am so grateful for their help.”
Claire will be accessing the prize, a range of business support from different providers, in early 2019.
This will enable her to develop Rockallwight PR, as it nears the end of its first financial year. The prize includes, business mentoring, social media development, sales coaching, web development, photography, personal styling and more.
