MEETWO WINNERS IN THE 2016 SANTANDER UNIVERSITY ENTREPRENEUR AWARDS

MeeTwo has been announced runner up in the 6th annual Santander University Entrepreneur Awards in the category “New Technologies and Mobile Applications”. Over 200 applicants representing 90 universities from across the UK entered the competition. MeeTwo was proud to be selected to represent Birkbeck University where Suzi Godson is currently studying for a PhD in psychology.

The prize is a combination of funding, mentoring and coaching from Santander UK and marketing agency Talent Cupboard. Birkbeck University have also committed their support to help make MeeTwo a success.

MeeTwo is a wonderful business developed by the keen minds of Birkbeck PhD Psychology student Suzi Godson and education technologist Dr Kerstyn Comley. Having Birkbeck represented in the Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards by Suzi and her social enterprise was a fantastic demonstration of shared values. We are extremely pleased Suzi and Kerstyn’s hard work to date resulted in placing as runner-up in the New Technologies and Mobile Applications category. We now look to the future of MeeTwo and will draw on Birkbeck’s strong network and expertise to ensure Suzi continues to enjoy success as MeeTwo becomes investor-ready.
