This year, Servcorp gave budding and existing entrepreneurs an opportunity to overcome what’s holding them back from growing or starting their own business by giving away over $40,000 worth of prizes!

They simply had to tell us in a 30 second video what’s holding them back from turning their startup idea into a reality, or – if they’re already going – what helped them take that first step.

The lucky winner who displayed the most inspiring story was Ellis Mitchel from Fiseek who won a Servcorp Serviced Office for 1 year, plus $2,000 cash. Valued at $35,960.

And the runner up was Leo Alhalabi from LGT Tutoring who won a Servcorp Virtual Office for 1 year, plus $1,000 cash. Valued at $5,200.

We had some amazing entrants. Watch their inspiring stories click here
