Flexydine has an app-etite for success

A team of seven University of Salford students are celebrating after securing over £1,000 in funding to develop their business idea Flexydine.

Flexydine seizes on the increasing popularity of last minute booking, offering consumers the chance to book a table through their website and app with significant discounts.

The app benefits both diners and restaurateurs, with tables booked up and meals available at cut prices. 

The team are now looking to grow the business after being victorious in two pitching competitions, the Santander Pitch It and the Incubox Kickfactor contest. 

Their first victory came at the Santander Pitch It competition, when their pitch impressed the judging panel so much that they won the £250 prize and will now represent Salford at the national Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards.

The win then built their confidence for the Kickfactor competition just weeks later, when they scooped a bigger prize of £1,000. This competition was supported by Wildings Solicitors and Incubox in partnership with the University of Salford’s enterprise team and Salford Business School. 

Suleiman Duale of FlexyDine said: “The process was intense but yet rewarding. Winning both competitions has boosted the moral of the team and with the support and investment from both Wildings and Santander we can cover base start-up costs of the company and move forward from there.” 

The Flexydine team is made up of budding entrepreneurs Adam Karow, Georgy Bickerdyke, Suleiman Duale, Joseph Laisby, Cristinel Mateias, Mohammad Jaberansari and Hamza Shah.
