We recently entered an award for the category ‘Digital Business of the Year (small)’ in the Digital Entrepreneur Awards 2108.
Last week we got an email saying we have been shortlisted and are now finalists.
So, what are the Digital Entrepreneur Awards ? The Digital Entrepreneur Awards celebrates the best digital talent in the UK. The Digital Entrepreneur Awards are the longest-standing national tech awards. The DEAs are in its 14th year awarding digital companies for their hard-work and innovation.
The judging panel consists of 11 remarkable people: Heather Waters, Enterprise Manager, NatWest; Vikas Shah, CEO of Swiscot Group; Jacqueline de Rojas CBE, President of techUK and the chair of the Digital Leaders board; Lawrence Jones MBE, Founder and CEO - UKFast; Gail Jones, Joint Managing Director - UKFast; Susie Ma, Founder and CEO of Tropic Skincare; Naomi Timperley, Co Founder of Tech North Advocates and Chair of Capital Pilot; Jon Woodall, Founder & Managing Director of Space 48. Richard Law, CEO, GB Group; Richard Law, CEO, GB Group; Laura Bartlett, Founding Editor & Publisher of House of CoCo and Richard Gregory, Chairman of Ruler Analytics and Ash.tv, Non-Exec Director of Fluid Digital and Co-Founder of SAScon.
Sponsors include: UKfast, Manchester Evening News, Business Cloud, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Sale Sharks and Tech Manchester.
The category we entered was the ‘Digital Business of the Year (Small)’. This award recognises entrepreneurial talent using digital to make a name in our industries. The judges wanted to see a clear indication of success. This award was about consistency throughout the year and a collective entrepreneurial approach to business. It is as much about the company's relationship with digital as it is the successful projects themselves.
Because we have been shortlisted we have been invited to the awards ceremony where the winners will be announced. The formal, black-tie ceremony will be held at the iconic Principle Hotel in the heart of Manchester city centre on the 22nd November. How exciting!
We are really proud to be shortlisted for this award. Thank you to everyone involved.
