AXA Startup Angel

Win £25,000 to kick-start your business with the AXA Startup Angel competition

The AXA Startup Angel competition, in partnership with the Evening Standard, is back for 2023 and ready to give budding entrepreneurs the chance to turn their business dreams into a reality.

There are six chances to win, including two top prizes of £25,000, mentorship from leading UK business owners and business insurance for a year, thanks to AXA.
Could you impress our panel of successful entrepreneurs – Sharmadean Reid MBE, founder and CEO of The Stack World; Raphael Sofoluke, founder and CEO of UK Black Business Show; and Henry Firth and Ian Theasby, co-founders of vegan food brand Bosh! – with your business idea?

Entering couldn’t be easier – simply send us a pitch video and answer a couple of questions to share your drive, passion and excitement for your business, and our judges will choose their favourites.

Last year, we awarded our top prizes to two fantastic small businesses: Team Repair and Muihood. So if you’ve got a winning business idea, what are you waiting for?
