Small businesses shine at the fifth FSB London Business Awards

The best and brightest of London’s small business community walked home with the main prizes at the fifth FSB London Business Awards held at the Emirates Stadium.

Awards were spread across London as Piccolo (an organic Baby Food Business) picked up the coveted Micro business of the Year and The Phoenix Artist Club picked up Business of the Year (11-50 employees).

The Young entrepreneurs and the apprentices were also on show as Zara Akhtar and Daniel Andrews (from thisisthetree.com) picked up Apprentice of the Year and Young Entrepreneur of the Year respectively.

Steve Warwick, London Regional Chair, said:

“We were thrilled with the quality and quantity of entrants this year. To win any category was an achievement considering the incredible talent possessed by all the finalists.
