Thawte will help get your start-up off the ground with £1000 worth of prizes

Perhaps you’re a budding entrepreneur and have only recently taken the big step and begun your start-up. Or maybe your business isn’t that young any more, but you’re able to share with others the invaluable experience and insights you’ve gained along the way.

Thawte® wants to hear all about your business success and how you achieved it. Share with us the tips and tricks you wish you’d known before starting out on your own business venture, and you could win a whole host of prizes, including an iPad Mini, tickets to the Fast Growth Forum and a Thawte® SSL Web Server Certificate with EV.
Why do you need an SSL?
Whether with personal information or banking details, as a small business operating online, it’s likely that in some measure you ask people to transact on your website. Your customers ought to feel confident that you are using essential security software to keep their data safe. With a Thawte Trusted Site Seal comes the green address bar which confirms to customers that your identity has been authenticated to the industry’s highest standard.

Follow these three easy steps to competition success!
Step one
Write a blog post on your personal or business site about the experiences that made a success of, and challenged, your start-up venture. The article should contain your top tip for aspiring entrepreneurs.
Step two
Make your post as engaging and interesting to readers as possible because they are your judges.  That’s right; to win any of our great prizes your story needs to be one of the most “shared” in the competition. So whether through Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or any other network through which you connect with your customers or peers, people need to enjoy your post enough to share it with their friends. Readers will be more inclined to naturally share your story if it’s inspiring and valuable to them.
Step three
The blog post must contain a link back to the competition. This is the way we will keep a track of your entry so that we can judge the winners from 26 November 2014 when the competition closes.
