Each finalist will receive a Mynewsdesk licence for the duration of the finalist phase to promote its entry to the voting public.

Adam Cranfield, Chief Marketing Officer at Mynewsdesk explained, "No-one doubts the power of positive publicity for any company's success. However, it is even more vital for young companies, especially enterprise technology startups. Often with powerful, but sometimes complex ideas, having a comprehensive news platform like Mynewsdesk is an essential springboard for them to be seen, heard and subsequently be successful. We are looking forward to working with these amazing finalists to help them spread the word and attract votes."
