GIMA Innovator’s Seed Corn Fund winner confirmed

Earlier this year the Garden Industry Manufacturers’ Association (GIMA) launched a £5,000 seed corn fund to encourage new businesses, designers and innovators to enter the market.

The competition drew entries from all corners of the UK, with over 20 entries being submitted from a wide range of designers and innovators.  One company however stood out from the rest – introducing the winners of the inaugural GIMA Innovators’ Seed Corn Fund, SteadyPost.

Suppliers of the innovative FenceFins™, SteadyPost is revolutionising the way that we erect fences, one fence post at a time, and it is this approach to delivering a simple solution to a common problem that appealed to the GIMA Seed Corn panel of judges.

The FenceFin™ is an easy-to-use alternative to spikes or concrete, usually employed to anchor wooden fence posts in the ground. Installation is quick and easy, and a firm fence fixing is ensured, whilst no heavy labour or special equipment is needed.  

GIMA Director, Vicky Nuttall said: “We’re incredibly pleased to announce that SteadyPost has been awarded the first ever GIMA Innovators’ Seed Corn Fund.  The company, and its product, really stood out for a number of reasons.  The first is that the FenceFin™ tackles a common problem head on in the most innovative yet simple way; and the second is that the team at SteadyPost have already managed to successfully manufacture and retail their product.  But I believe what most attracted us was the volume sale opportunity it offers retailers. We’ve no doubt that the exposure that SteadyPost’s FenceFins™ will receive following this ‘win’ will mean that it will be no time at all before we see the product stocked in garden centres, sheds and multiple retailers across the country.  It really is that good!”
