Zuto was founded when our fresh faced co-founders, James and Ryan, took a leap of faith and decided car buyers of Britain deserved better.
In ten years, that belief has transformed from an idea in a small office on a Macclesfield industrial estate into a two-site business, employing over 300 people and achieving a turnover of over £20 million.
The award-winning business has now helped over half a million people find car finance and James and Ryan have both been recognised for their innovation. James is currently both the Regional and National EY Entrepreneur of the Year and Ryan was named Young Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2015 EN Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.
We have £5,000 to give to the UK’s brightest new business talent, to help get them started on the road to success.
As well as the chance to win this investment, a shortlist of five entrants will spend two weeks in Zuto’s offices gaining experience in everything from finance and marketing to sales and operations. You’ll have the opportunity to get advice and inspiration on how to make your business plan a reality and an insight into how Zuto has grown from a two-man-band to the company it is today. The overall winner will also be offered on-going mentorship from Zuto.
We believe in giving people with talent the chance to follow in the footsteps of James and Ryan. All you need to do is show us the same entrepreneurial flair.
The five finalists will win a two week workshop at Zuto with the overall winner receiving a £5,000 grant to help bring the business plan to life. In order to win the overall prize, the shortlisted five will pitch their idea to the Zuto board after their internship.
