The search is on for the rising stars of British business, with nominations for the 13th annual Startups Awards now open.
Start-ups of all sizes and industries can make their case for why they are amongst Britain’s most exciting business prospects, before being scrutinised by an expert judging panel made up of Cath Kidston, Emma Sinclair, Nick Wheeler and the co-founders of Innocent Drinks, LOVEFiLM and Secret Escapes, who will select the eventual winners.
The Startups Awards are the longest established awards of their kind and have built a reputation for recognising and celebrating innovative, disruptive and ambitious new businesses.
Previous winners include Notonthehighstreet.com, Ella’s Kitchen, The Cambridge Satchel Company and Purplebricks, which have all gone on to enjoy huge success.
A shortlist of entrants will be announced on October 10, before the winners are announced at a ceremony at London’s Royal Garden Hotel on November 17.
The Startups Awards 2016 are open for entries from now until Friday, September 16.
