Celebrations at Ship Shape

October 2022 has been a month to celebrate at Ship Shape.


We launched our free search engine at the start of September.


Since then we’ve had over two thousand users and nearly 900 different search phrases - mainly by founders who are finding investors interested in their business area!


The shipshape.vc team also won two notable awards in October:

  • Fintech Awards Wales - Fintech Start-up of the Year 2022.

  • Technology Connected - Wales Technology Awards, Sir Michael Moritz Tech Start-Up Award.


A few words from our CEO and Co-founder, Daniel Sawko

“We’re delighted to be recognised for the search engine we have built. We’re excited to be empowering founders and the ecosystem to better search and find relevant investors.”

Both awards represent the hard work that Ship Shape’s team has put in over the years, especially the previous months building up to our free release.


For the company, it’s great to see the growth in other tech businesses and the entire Welsh ecosystem.
