The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards recognise the best small businesses and the self-employed from right across the UK, from every sector and industry and from businesses of all ages and all sizes.
The awards are the leading celebration of small businesses, shining a light on some of the best, most innovative and most determined smaller businesses.
This is why we choose to keep entries to the awards free, and have them open to all smaller businesses and the self-employed, whether they are current FSB members, or not.
The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well, with an incredible 5.7 million small businesses in the UK and we want you to help us celebrate that.
Entries are now open for the 2019 Celebrating Small Business Awards
From all the award entries and area winners, eleven category winners were selected, and from these the FSB Small Business of the Year 2018 was selected as Creative Nature.
“The most amazing thing about winning the National FSB awards was getting to open the London Stock Exchange. It’s been a dream of mine for as long as I remember, and the FSB made it happen! We’ve gained national and international recognition from winning the award, including an article in the Flybe in-flight magazine and lots of other media coverage. I would definitely recommend other businesses enter in 2019 as it gives your business so much credibility being a national award, even if you don’t win it’s such a great networking opportunity. I’ll be entering again, so will hopefully see some of you at the finals!”
Julianne Ponan, Creative Nature.
I’m thrilled to be recognised as the FSB Small Business of the Year 2018. As a small business, innovation is the key to the sustainability of our successful business performance. We constantly focus on developing new and exciting products. Our products will constantly push the boundaries of ‘free-from’ and will introduce new taste and eating experiences for consumers.
“We’re delighted to be awarded the FSB Employer of the Year Award. Flexible working patterns can really add to business success. Provided we deliver on deadline for clients, and produce quality work, we’re never questioned about when or where we choose to work."
“We’re thrilled to be awarded by FSB as being the UK’s best Ethical – Green Business of the Year. Our pioneering, gentle farming techniques look after the grasslands of the Lower Derwent Valley in Yorkshire – 97 per cent this habitat has been lost already and we want to preserve it."
“We’re thrilled to be awarded the FSB Business Exporter of the Year. Our revolutionary design is really popular throughout the world and it means a lot to be recognised by FSB.”
Last year, The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards 2018 attracted more than 2,000 entries. Some of them from innovative start-ups; others from businesses which had grown substantially in just a couple of years; others were from long-established family businesses which continue to adapt to constantly shifting environments and consumer trends to stay successful.
There were entries from those who’d had a really great idea along with the determination and belief to make it work. There were also many examples of how our small businesses are using exporting as a serious means of growth; demonstrating their resilience and innovation in seeking overseas markets.
The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards 2019 are now open and closing dates are staggered across areas between December 2018 and March 2019.
A series of 12 area awards will take place between January and April 2019, and the area winners of all the award categories will then go forward to the UK national final. Our range of award categories have been carefully selected to ensure all small businesses have at least one category to excel in. Remember, eligible businesses can enter as many categories as they wish, at no cost.
The UK final will take place on 23 May at the fabulous Evolution Battersea. The event is the highlight of the small business calendar – with a drinks reception, entertainment, dinner, the awards ceremony and a few surprises! The guest list will include some of the most inspiring people in the worlds of business and enterprise.
