British Chambers Awards
ESpark in contention for high growth prize
Entrepreneurial Spark, the world’s biggest business accelerator for early stage and growing ventures, has been shortlisted for High Growth Business of the Year in the British Chambers of Commerce Awards taking place in London next week.
Eight businesses will compete for business of the year and receive a £10,000 cash prize.
Recognising business of all sizes that have experienced exceptional growth in sales, profit, market share, jobs or international trade, the High Growth Business of the Year award will showcase an organisation the BCC believes has not only achieved exceptional results, but also has an eye to the future.
Jim Duffy, co-founder and chief executive of Entrepreneurial Spark, said: “From launching Entrepreneurial Spark Powered by Viridian in India earlier this summer, to opening Hatcheries in Brighton, Leeds and Bristol and announcing new Hatcheries in Manchester, Belfast, Cardiff, Milton Keynes, Newcastle and London before 2017, it has been an exciting year so far.
“It is an honour to have been shortlisted for the High Growth Business of the Year award, and we look forward to attending the awards dinner and meeting businesses from across the UK.”
The ceremony takes place on 26 November.
