Success for Rugby as local business wins Conservative Party search for Britain’s top entrepreneurs

A local business from Rugby has won a national competition for find Britain’s top start-ups.  Off Grid Energy has won the opportunity to exhibit at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester next week. 

Off Grid Energy is one of a dozen British start-up businesses that will showcase their businesses at the Start-up Hub in front of thousands of delegates, the nation’s media and business leaders from across the country.

The national competition, launched two years ago, is a chance for 12 new businesses to demonstrate their ideas or designs during the four day conference running from Sunday, September 29th to Wednesday, October 2nd.

Local MP Mark Pawsey said:

“I am thrilled that Off Grid Energy had been chosen to exhibit at Conference. This was a unique opportunity for the winning entrepreneurs and a fantastic chance to show off their work to thousands of delegates, the nation’s media and business leaders from across the country.”

Danny Jones, managing director of Off Grid Energy, said: 

“Our products have the potential to revolutionise the way in which industry uses power where grid connection isn’t available whilst saving them money and reducing their emissions.  But when you are a small business reaching the informers and decision makers that are key to our strategy isn’t always easy. When we saw a tweet about the competition from our local MP, Mark Pawsey, it seemed an ideal opportunity to get in front of thousands of influential people – something a start up with small marketing budgets can only dream of.”
