Exceptional criterias for Enterprise Awards 2024

In 2024, the Enterprise Awards are spotlighting various categories such as Emerging Entrepreneur, Public Sector Entrepreneur, Scale-Up Entrepreneur, and many others. The judging panel will carefully assess companies based on their vision, growth trajectory, innovation, funding strategies, resource utilisation, strategic execution, and unwavering determination to succeed. They will also evaluate the innovation demonstrated through products, services, or business models. Hence, it is a great opportunity to showcase achievements of entrepreneurial excellence! 

Benefits of being an ‘Enterprise Award’ Winner

The Enterprise Awards offers unique recognition to founders rather than solely focusing on their businesses. Past award recipients have attained prominence in both private and public markets. The Enterprise Awards Alumni boasts some of the UK’s most successful tech businesses, including the leaders of Wise, Quantexa, Darktrace, TPXimpact (formerly Panoply), and ActiveOps.

Mentorship support for winners

The winners of the 2024 Enterprise Awards will get extensive support from ScaleUp Group, the organisers and sponsors of the event. They will support founders by including access to growth finance after proper preparation, participation in CEO Forums for confidential discussions with peer groups, introductions to C-level talent, executive coaching, guidance on selling their business through associate Silverpeak, advice on wealth management through associate Evelyn Partners, market research via TechMarketView, and on-demand advice and guidance on market positioning, sales and pricing strategy, product/market fit, and more.

Hellen Bowey, CEO and Founder at Alcove, an Enterprise Awards winner commented: “Winning the Enterprise Awards has been a transformative experience for me and my company. Having been honoured multiple times, I can confidently say that the recognition and support provided by the Enterprise judges have been invaluable. Their unrivalled support and access have enabled me to unlock a network of inspiring tech innovators, opening doors to collaboration and growth opportunities. Since first winning the Enterprise Awards, my company has experienced remarkable growth, expanding by an impressive 1282%. This exponential growth is a testament to the impact of the awards and the opportunities they have presented. The recognition has not only boosted our credibility within the industry but has also fuelled our motivation to push boundaries and strive for excellence.”
