Stress Buddy receiving the award from the judges

48 hours. One mission. And in the end, one overall winner, team Stress Buddy take the Innovate Suffolk May, 2019 trophy and £500 grand prize.

There’ll be lots more in the days and weeks ahead, both on the May weekend and on our next weekend in November and meetups and opportunities to connect in between.

Every team is a winning team. It’s crazy, impossible surely, to progress an idea in 48 hours. But you did it. You all made amazing progress. You amazed the mentors, impressed the judges, and said you’d love to do the same again and encourage others to come along next time!

We’ll be collecting feedback, seeing what worked and what wasn’t so smooth, and we’ll use that learning. After we catch up on sleep! Enjoy Bank Holiday Monday, and let’s keep building: building connections, building aspiration, building trust, building ideas and startups and sustainability. We’re building a Suffolk that embraces, celebrates and supports entrepreneurial communities.

And we can only do that together.

Thanks again. Congratulations, Stress Buddy. We’re excited for what lies ahead!
