Business Startup of the Year

This award recognises new start-up businesses, under two years old that have translated an idea into a successful business venture. The organisation must be able to demonstrate continued growth since start-up whilst meeting and overcoming challenges.

The judges will be looking at:

  • The rationale behind starting up your business and what you were doing before
  • Challenges and opportunities faced since starting the business and how you approached them.
  • Personal and professional development undertaken and how this has supported your success.
  • How the activities have contributed to your business success, growth and financial performances.
