The judges spent many days deliberating because all 10 finalists were outstanding in their own right. But they did finally come to a decision, and tonight we handed the winner a life-size boarding pass to and from San Francisco’s Silicon Valley – the world capital for innovation – where they will have the opportunity to meet some of the most influential entrepreneurs of our time.

Without further ado, the winner is Selz!

Selz - Winner of Shoe String Startup of the Year

Launched in May this year, Selz is proudly disrupting the multi-billion dollar online transaction industry. It offers simple selling tools for individuals and businesses that have a strong online presence and following.

Unlike PayPal and other third-party selling platforms, with Selz individuals and businesses just have to create a product listing through the site and choose where to place that product for sale. They can embed it into their blog or website or share it as a post or tweet; they can pin it on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest; and they can sell the product on Facebook by adding a Selz Store tab to their Facebook page.

Essentially, Selz is all about empowering the ‘little guys’ by providing them with a tool that affords them the ability to operate outside the boundaries of larger third-party organisations, and have real ownership of their business, end to end.
