We are excited to announce that Stora has been shortlisted for the Belfast Telegraph's Best Start-up or Emerging Business Award 2023!

Stora Shortlisted for Best Start-up or Emerging Business Award

These awards are an annual celebration of the achievements of businesses and entrepreneurs in Northern Ireland, and being nominated is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our entire team. Highlighting the success Stora has achieved since launching in March 2021.

Born out of a need for a modern software solution for our founder's Northern Ireland-based self storage facilities, Stora streamlines operations by offering online bookings, payments, and automated invoicing and collections. This makes it easier than ever for self storage operators to manage their facilities and grow their business.

The last two years have seen meteoric levels of growth, with Stora now serving over 100 self storage businesses across the UK, Europe, Australia and the United States. Our unique focus on leveraging modern technologies to drive automation and efficiency sets us apart in the industry and has been welcomed by the industry. Currently, we’re processing around 1.5% of all UK self storage revenues and we aim to reach 3% by the end of the year.

At Stora, we've always strived to create innovative solutions that make a positive impact on our industry and the self storage community at large. Following a record number of applications, being recognised for our efforts in this highly competitive category fills us with real pride as it acknowledges the commitment our team has put into building a successful and forward-thinking business. This recognition further fuels our motivation to continue pushing Stora and create even more value for self storage owners & operators.

As we look forward to the gala event on April 27th, we are excited to celebrate this special occasion with our fellow innovators and, regardless of the outcome, we remain committed to driving positive change in self storage.
