Earlier this year, we at Laundrapp were informed we had been nominated for a Startups Award, which was fantastically exciting. Last night, 17th of November 2016, we attended the amazing awards ceremony at the Royal Garden Hotel and what a night it was!

The Startups Awards have been going for 13 years now and has a reputation for spotlighting some of the UK’s best entrepreneurial businesses and creating massive interest in the start-up market. Previous winners have included Ella’s Kitchen, Raspberry Pi, Secret Escapes and many more.
The 2016 awards show had many different award categories and fantastic group of nominees, such as Onfido, Cornerstone, Housekeep and LOVESPACE. We were excited to just be sharing a space with so many other innovative start-ups.

We had been nominated for App of the Year and when our category was called out there was excitement in the air. To our surprise, after a few seconds of silence, Laundrapp was announced the winner! After 2 years of hard work we were extremely proud to receive the App of the Year Award.

Emotions were high last night and there were a couple of tired looking faces in the office this morning, but we are honoured by this award and are now more motivated than ever to provide a great service to our customers!
