Aged just 24 and recently out of university, Ben Ridgway and Jamie Cooke started this property auction services provider in 2009, with £10,000 they had borrowed from family and friends. The Newcastle business provides online auctions and also runs traditional physical ones in the UK and Ireland. Last year it expanded into providing other services, such as conveyancing. It is now developing virtual online auctions for estate agents, allowing customers to bid on the phone and the web at live auctions. Sales reached £8.7m last year.
