CATEGORIES

Aimed at companies that have been trading for less than one year, this category will have judges looking for innovative business ideas or a clear point of differentiation. Did the organisation identify a gap in the market for something new, or perhaps offer an established product/service with a special twist? The judges will focus on future potential rather than an entrant’s ability to show turnover and profit growth at this early stage. Focusing on the business plan, judges will look at how targets and KPIs have been exceeded and how the vision for growing the business has been executed in terms of turnover, employment and expansion.

If your business is less than one year old but has already achieved something great, we want to hear your story in this category.
