Lancaster based entrepreneur in top 26 of the MassChallenge UK accelerator
Tarun Sainani, a former Highwire PhD candidate, is in with a chance of winning a share of £500,000 for his app based business, World Around Me.
Tarun (who incidentally is also featured on our homepage – see the picture under “I have experience I want to share with aspiring entrepreneurs”) created the app which allows users to find and easily identify services and amenities via their smartphone. Already partnered with Google, IBM and FbStart Accelerate, Tarun and his team will pitch to a final judging panel at MassChallenge UK before the winners are revealed at an awards ceremony later this month.
Good luck and congratulations!
