Animal-free testing in the spotlight: we’re off to the Pitchathon!

We’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all who voted for us in the first stage of the Virgin Media Business VOOM2016 competition!

We’re very excited to have been shortlisted to go through to the next round (the “Pitchathon”) in London next week, where we’ll be presenting XCellR8’s growth plans to a panel of high profile judges. We’ll be putting forward the urgent need for more non animal testing to support the safety and efficacy of the diverse range of cosmetics and personal care products being created across the industry.

From the 80 companies presenting in the “Grow” category, 20 will go forward to the Entrepreneur Workshops in Birmingham on 13th -14th June, where 6 finalists will be chosen to pitch to Richard Branson (“Pitch to Rich”) and his panel. The live Finale will take place on 28th June for a share of £1 Million prize money. We’ve received a huge amount of support so far from across the cosmetics and personal care industry as well as the public.

Thank you once again – it is hugely appreciated and we’ll keep you posted about developments in the coming weeks!
