Calling all Pioneers: your opinions wanted!
The Olympics made 2012 a memorable one for UK businesses but it was an eventful year for the Pioneers’ community too and we’re expecting 2013 to be just as busy.
Help us to improve Virgin Media Pioneers
In 2012, we launched the new Virgin Media Pioneers 2.0 website with a number of new features, took the first intake of Pioneers through ‘The Project‘ and witnessed the launch of the Start-Up Loans initiative which came about via Pioneers’ Youth Investment Fund campaign.
Pioneers were also given the opportunity to enter a ‘Pitch 2 Rich‘ competition with four Pioneers winning the opportunity to pitch their businesses to Richard Branson and take home a share of the allocated £5,000 prize fund. Another group of Pioneers returned from enjoying an all-expenses paid trade mission with Pioneer-at-Large Richard Branson in India where they were able to network with fellow entrepreneurs from the UK and India.
“Good brands reflect the histories of the time and the group of people that made them”. - Richard Branson, Business Stripped Bare
How are we doing?
As we often emphasise, in order to move businesses forward whilst making sure they’re still in keeping with the core vision and values, it’s important to take time out to reflect. As a result, Virgin Media Pioneers is looking to dig a little deeper into understanding how we impact on the start-up community and your businesses: what works well and where improvements can be made for the future. We want to ensure we’re giving you everything you need to get your bright idea off the ground and then get it rocketing; keeping you inspired, connected and able to get ahead at every stage of your entrepreneurial journey.
We’d really appreciate it if you’d join your fellow Pioneers in completing the 15 minute survey below. We’ve engaged an external and independent research agency to conduct this survey. All the data collected will be stored securely and none of your personally identifiable information will be passed on to Virgin Media. You will not receive any sales calls as a result of anything you say in this survey either.
Now over to the external researchers
We’re conducting research on behalf of Virgin Media Pioneers into the Pioneers programme. This research will help the team understand the impact of the work, including what has worked well and where improvements could be made for the future.
The survey should only take 15 minutes and your feedback will make a huge difference to how the programme grows over the next year. We hope you’ll take part.
Just so you know, we have been engaged as an external and independent research agency to conduct this survey. All the data we collect is stored on a secure server and none of your personally identifiable information is passed on to Virgin Media. You will not receive any sales calls as a result of anything you say in this survey. We strictly adhere to the Market Research Society Code of Conduct and the Data Protection Act, and use all personal information in a responsible and secure manner.
So let’s get going!
