Hustle Awards finalist

We are excited to announce that Raising Partners have made it through to the shortlist of the Hustle Awards 2022 in the Outstanding Startups Supporter category!

The Hustle Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of individuals, companies and innovation, raise standards across the sector, and inspire and celebrate the creative and entrepreneurial journey.

The award organisers, Startups Magazine, have said “being shortlisted for a Hustle Award is an extraordinary achievement. The talent and innovation found in this year’s awards submissions absolutely wowed our esteemed panel of expert judges, and previous years have seen some truly inspiring entrepreneurs being shortlisted as well as winning. We saw a record number of entries, the standard being so high meaning unfortunately many good entries didn’t make the cut.”

Raising Partners founder, Helena Murphy, knows the reality of how tough the investment landscape is for start-ups after her first business was unsuccessful with a second fundraise and left her in £100k of personal debt. Having lived this experience, Helena founded Raising Partners with the clear purpose of ‘advancing the entrepreneurial ecosystem through access to capital’. This can only be achieved by empowering the founders and leadership teams of early-stage start-ups.

The team at Raising Partners work daily to guide founders as they try to navigate the realities of raising investment, whilst also running growing start-up businesses.

Additionally, via the Runway by Raising Partners platform, the team aims to educate and guide early-stage entrepreneurs on their early fundraises in the aim to enhance the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the UK.

Helena said of the awards, “Winning this award would be a fantastic accolade to demonstrate our work over the past five years and help us to further build a platform with entrepreneurs and investors alike.”

Winners will be announced at the Hustle Awards taking place on Thursday 21 July at the Steel Yard, London – keep your fingers crossed for us!
