Award season for small businesses in Herts – there’s still time to enter!

The annual FSB Hertfordshire Business Awards closing date for applications is drawing near - 22nd April, but there’s still time to enter your business!

If you are running a Hertfordshire business with less than 250 employees, then check out the wide range of categories available to enter at

Held by the Federation of Small Businesses, the award ceremony recognises and rewards local businesses and business people that have accomplished great achievements.

A key category in these awards is, ‘Business Innovation’, sponsored by local business support organisation, Hertfordshire Growth Hub, based in Welwyn Garden City – a free and impartial support service for established Hertfordshire SMEs with real growth potential.

Dr Abrar Jawaid, Innovation & Technology Specialist, from Hertfordshire Growth Hub said:

“We are delighted to be supporting this year’s FSB Hertfordshire Business Awards as sponsors of the Business Innovation category. Innovation is an incredibly effective way to grow your business and we are delighted to be sponsoring this category.”

Sponsoring the ‘Best New Business Award’ this year is The Business & Technology Centre (btc), based in Stevenage - a business centre that provides an enterprising community with on-site business support.
Kate Munro, Head of Marketing at the btc stated:

“We are very proud to be sponsoring The FSB Hertfordshire Business Awards for the third year in a row. As a business centre that actively supports and encourages new businesses to start-up and grow, we are especially pleased to be sponsoring the 'Best New Business' category."

Other categories include ‘Entrepreneur of the Year', ‘Creative Business of the Year’ and ‘Networking Group of the Year’. There is also an overall winner prize which is £3000’s worth of advertising in the Hertfordshire Mercury and Herts and Essex Observer newspapers!

The FSB commented:
"We would encourage anyone that is thinking of entering to just do it! It is a great way of creating local PR for your business. If you are a winner, runner-up or even short-listed for an award, it is something to shout about to your customers. It gives you credibility and may help you to secure new business."
