Amanda White is startup finalist


St Columb Major-based startup Amanda White Digital has been named a finalist ahead of the south west final of the StartUp Awards.

The StartUp Awards has been launched to recognise the booming startup scene across the UK which has accelerated since the 2019 pandemic. Over 800,000 new businesses were founded in the UK since 2021, a 4.3% increase from the year before.

A record number of businesses applied to this year’s StartUp Awards, with 1,100 firms shortlisted across ten UK nations and regions. The contribution of these firms – all of which were started in the last three years – is significant, having created over 5,000 new jobs since they were established and generating annual sales of £584 million.

Amanda White Digital is a SEO and PPC Specialist founded by Amanda White in 2020. She said: “It’s amazing to be getting recognised. As a female business owner and in particular, a busy mum, juggling a business and childcare is one of the hardest jobs I’ve ever done.”
