Every year, we share our collective knowledge and expertise to help one Welsh startup build the brand they dreamed of, no strings attached.

We are eager to push the button on our sixth, annual Brand Labs competition; ready to partner with the winner on an exhilarating journey, to push the boundaries and propel their startup to new heights.

Brand Labs 2023 is your opportunity to unleash your full potential and make a lasting impact on the business landscape of our incredible nation. Together, let’s embark on a transformative journey of discovery, innovation, and collaboration as we join forces to help shape the future of Wales.

What you get

It’s designed to challenge, empower, and propel you towards your ambitions. Our experienced team is ready to deep dive into your business, unravel its unique DNA, and deliver a game-changing brand, strategy and website that resonates with your audience on a profound level.

Brand Labs goes beyond the tangibles. We offer our winners mentorship, support and guidance. The time and space to think clearly, and work creatively. We are invested in your definition of success. We are all in.

This year, the prize is worth more than £20,000. What are you waiting for?
