ELITE is delighted to be sponsoring the ‘SCALE-UP BUSINESS OF THE YEAR’ at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards 2018

We are pleased to be partnering with the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards to drive home our initiative for the most ambitious SMEs.  ELITE is a programme helping businesses to scale up, access capital and network. Working closely with the National Business Awards 2018 is an extension of this ethos, and gives us further opportunity to support the thriving UK business community.

The Awards have recently extended their entry deadline and this closes on Friday 22nd June.  If you want to win one of the ‘Oscars of Great British Business’ this is your last chance to submit your entries. 

Independently judged by a leading panel of UK business luminaries, the Awards showcase companies who have demonstrated outstanding business practices.  Finalists range from sole traders, entrepreneurs, SMEs to FTSE250 - all competing to tell the best business success stories in the context of their challenges, and with 18 categories in total, there is a chance for everyone to tell their story and gain the recognition they deserve. 


The full list of entry categories can be found here

This year’s edition also presents two new exciting categories – the ‘Fujitsu Artificial Intelligence Award’ and the ‘Experian Data Excellence Award’ which reflect the importance these areas will play in the UK Government’s new Industrial Strategy, and areas where burgeoning start-ups have already found major success both domestically and internationally.  


Graeme Malcolm, CEO of M Squared Lasers, who are part of ELITE and winner of the Samsung Innovation Award 2016 said: “The programme has increased our awareness of the different forms of funding and what needs to be done to prepare for each. It allows us to think about how we can keep scaling up.”


Want to boost your standing in the UK market?   Why not consider entering and showcase your business on a national scale and gain the recognition it deserves.  

Time is running out fast – entries close Friday 22nd June 2018
