British Christmas Jumpers spreads festive cheer alongside global retailers
British Christmas Jumpers chosen as the winner of iZettle’s 12 Hour Store competition and selected to trade on Saturday 1st November 2014.
Winner chosen by an expert panel including Charles Dunstone, investor in iZettle and founder of Carphone Warehouse, Eric Van Der Kleij, former CEO of Tech City and Jacob de Geer, co-founder and CEO at iZettle.
On the winner of the competition, Sir Charles Dunstone, investor in iZettle and founder of Carphone Warehouse, says: “The response to iZettle’s 12 Hour Store competition has been phenomenal. It was tough to choose a winner but we felt British Christmas Jumpers fitted the concept that ‘big businesses start small’ well and the video entry they submitted was engaging and quite frankly, a cut above the rest.”
