Ugli Entrepreneurs to watch out in 2014.

Everything started with our lovelies from Mainstage Travel... In January, Rob and Aden, founders of a tour operator specialising in festival and clubbing holidays, secure and absolute steal of a deal with... Dragon's Den! Yup, that's right... their appearance on the BBC show was so impressive and they completely nailed it! They received offers from  four dragons and chose Piers Linney's offer. Huge congratulations to you guys!

Lights down please...

Back in November last year, the lovely director Sophie Venner screened her short film 'Room 8' - a truly inspiring and brilliantly thought up concept we thought! This short film had such an air of mystery in it that after the 5 minutes we asked ourselves "what just happened?" Well it turns out we aren't the only ones blown away! It WON the BAFTA for Short Film 2014... Bet Sophie and James were thrilled to rub their shoulders with some of the most prestigious peeps in the film industry!

Music lovers - this one is for you...

Black Fox Management who joined the Ugli lot last December is a music management company looking after Bastille, Ghostwriter and Rag 'N' Bone Man... and they've already made us proud! Do you guys know Bastille? If you don't, check them out because they've been named British Breakthrough Act at the Brit Awards 2014! Not bad, huh?!

And the winner is...
