Bet Buddy has initially focused on the gaming industry, where increasing regulation and a growing need for companies to responsibly manage customers has led to strong interest from sector stakeholders. The company has supported through its early stages by the Cass Entrepreneurship Fund team, based at the Peter Cullum Centre for Entrepreneurship.
Jane Reoch, Investment Director, Cass Entrepreneurship Fund, said: "We are delighted that Simo has been shortlisted for the Entrepreneurial Venture Award. Bet Buddy is a great example of a young innovative business, and we wish the team every success."
Simo said: "I am excited about the nomination for Association of MBAs Entrepreneurial Awards this year and I am looking forward to the Gala Dinner with Cass Business School."
The awards judging panel will include Bill Morrow, Founder and CEO of Angels Den; Alpesh Patel, Director of Praefinium Partners Ltd; Cathal Brady, founder of Ultan Technologies;
The ceremony and Gala Dinner will take place on 6 November at the Montcalm Hotel in Mayfair.
