The 18th Growing Business Awards is now open to entrants, and Amazon is the new lead sponsor. The awards, inaugurated back in 1999 by Real Business, celebrates ‘outstanding achievements in the UK entrepreneurial and SME space’.
This year’s iteration of the awards will be known as the Amazon Growing Business Awards. With a nomination process running until 23 September, prizes will be awarded across 15 categories on 30 November. Categories include: Frachisee of the Year, Triumph over Adversity Award, Entrepreneur of the Year, and Digital Business of the Year.
“There could not be a better time to recognise the progress of British SMEs through the Amazon Growing Business Awards”, said Doug Gurr, Amazon UK’s country manager.
