Speaking about the win Shane Meehan, CEO of Media Lightbox said: “Our profile has received such a boost since our Seedcorn win. We immediately won three clients off the back of the competition and hopefully the phones will keep ringing!“Seedcorn has really helped us to focus our strategy. We found the expert advice and training invaluable when it came to our business plan and our Seedcorn win came at the perfect time as it allowed us to bring forward some of our innovative product development plans!
'Thanks to the money, we were able to pull out all the stops and get our product on the market much more quickly than would otherwise have been possible.”
