07 July 2022
Launchpad start-up Now & Then has been named as the Tourism and Leisure Start-up of the Year at the south west final of the StartUp Awards National Series.
Now & Then provides tools for attractions, museums, and places of interest to easily create guided tours uniquely tailored to each user, using pre-existing or new content.
Founder Mike Robinson said: “Winning this award is a huge honour. A substantial amount of hard work and preparation has gone in to creating Now & Then, we have overcome many hurdles and are now finally in a position to launch the new app.
“We are in talks with large tourism attractions, councils, and influencers with regards to creating exciting new tours which will enable people to connect to history and society. The future is bright for Now & Then - this is only the beginning.”
The final was held at the Propyard in Bristol and saw twenty different awards given out to new businesses. The awards were judged by a panel of prominent judges, including successful entrepreneurs and their supporters such as Jon Simon, co-founder & CEO of PieMinister, Ellie Webb, Founder & CEO Caleño, and Tom Ball, Founder of DeskLodge.
