Last week, Paperclip co-founders Rich and Alan were featured on this year's 35 Under 35!
The WalesOnline 35 Under 35, sponsored by FOR Cardiff, celebrate the best young business people and professionals in Wales. The platform has been run annually by WalesOnline since 2014 and showcases the best and brightest young talent living and working in the county.
Paul Rowland, Editor-in-chief, Media Wales, writes: “The WalesOnline 35 under 35 is a great platform to showcase the rising stars in the Welsh economy, across the private, public, education and third sectors...many of those who have made the lists, have gone on to achieve even greater success."
Speaking of the commendation, our CEO Rich said "Being named as a one of Wales' top business people was certainly the highlight of my year. The whole team has put a lot of effort into making Paperclip a strong product with a globally recognisable brand and we'd love to do our part to help chisel Wales onto the startup map. To have our efforts recognized in such a manner is both incredibly rewarding and motivating for everyone involved."
CCO Alan added, "It's an honour to be listed alongside some of these brilliant business people. Let's hope we can keep our place next year - before we get too old!"
The whole team would like to thank WalesOnline for taking the time to recognise both our founders and the brand.
Another week, another uni...
Not only this, but Paperclip have also added another university partner with the distinguished Queen Mary University London also jumping on board as Paperclip look to roll out yet another marketplace in time for Fresher's Week 2018. Much like our friends at KCLSU, the Queen Mary University London marketplace will be a joint venture with their Students' Union.
Speaking about the partnership, our CMO Laurence said "I'm delighted to have Queen Mary's new marketplace finished up and tested in time for the new academic year. Queen Mary has a great reputation both domestically and internationally and we are looking forward to rolling this out to the new September cohort."
