Start-Up Business of the Year

Launching your own business requires a wide range of skills and qualities (and a fair degree of courage).

The winner will be able to demonstrate that from the initial seed of an idea they identified an opportunity in the marketplace; developed, manufactured or sourced a product or service; took this to customers and successfully made sales. The judges will take into consideration sales growth, profit achievement, number of people employed and evidence of a satisfied customer base. To qualify, your business should not have been operating as a trading entity before January 2018.  Tell us what makes your business a contender for this award, what sets your company apart from your rivals and why your business should win this award.
