Since the beginning of the 20th century, business awards have been a way of encouraging small and medium-size companies to step up and be the best they could be. This is mainly in line with product development and revenue generation. These three business awards stand out majorly for focusing on technology and social solutions.
This is a unique business award that focuses on low-carbon innovation and technologies across the UK. For you to participate, you have to apply online. Then the shortlisted companies are invited to the main ceremony in London every year. Some of the categories which companies contest for include commercial viability, impact innovation and long-term vision. The main benefit of this award is recognition, and hopefully, one might get an investor from the publicity.
The Shell LiveWIRE Awards
This is an award under Shell’s Smarter Future Programme. The programme aims to provide support for SMEs that use innovation to come up with energy and resource solutions for a continually growing population. The award targets both innovators in England and beyond.
Shell LiveWIRE Awards run throughout the year in every month. One has to be between the age of 16 to 30 for them to participate. The winner gets about £5,000.
The Digital Entrepreneur Awards
With a lot of online businesses coming up, it is no surprise that the Digital Entrepreneur Awards would be launched. The award has been running for over a decade, celebrating different e-commerce talents across the UK.
Anyone can apply for this award, though it mostly focuses on SMEs and large businesses. The winner is usually the one with the most innovative, practical and exceptional online store.
Other business awards celebrated in England include the CleanTech Challenge, EDF Pulse awards and Future 100s, among others. Most of these allow prospective participants to apply online. This means you could give any of them a chance this year if you fit their categories.
