Fantastic News – We are winners!
eLocker is over the moon to announce that we are a winner in the Tech Nation Rising Stars competition –
We are over the moon to have won the Rising Stars competition! As a tech/hardware company we often fall into a gap in this type of competition but it has been amazing to be recognised and have the opportunity to compete against some fantastic scaling businesses and come out as a winner. Our team is ecstatic that we can now refer to eLocker as an award-winning tech company, how cool is that!!!!!
eLocker started in a pretty unusual way! My Dad and I started a festival phone charging business in 2013. We saw a gap in the market, I was in my early twenties, and the idea of a business that revolved around going to festivals, getting my mate’s free tickets and spending most of the summer drunk was literally the best thing ever….
After running phone charging lockers at festivals for a couple of summers we started to hire lockers to warehouses for their extra staff at Christmas (in the winter we just had a shed full of unused lockers), with our first customer being Amazon.
After hiring 2,000 lockers to them up at a site near Edinburgh we were asked the question ‘do you have a system to help us manage our lockers more easily?’
eLocker was born……
A big thank you to everyone involved and from our founders
