2020 AWARDS ENTRIES ARE NOW OPEN

 

FSB Scotland’s Celebrating Small Business Awards 2019 was a tremendous success, seeing businesses from right across the country scooping prizes across a range of categories. With hundreds of small Scottish firms entering the awards last year, they are becoming a sought-after prize in the small business sector. This year’s awards will recognise achievements in 12 categories at a prestigious awards ceremony at Edinburgh’s Waldorf Astoria in March.

Entries are open to FSB members and all small businesses across Scotland, who will be encouraged to get involved and apply.

The Scottish winners will also be entered for the UK-wide grand final held in London in May 2020 at Battersea Evolution. This year’s final saw Scottish firm, Cruise Loch Ness, lift not only the Family Business of the Year award, but the overall UK Business of the Year prize too. And the UK Young Entrepreneur of the Year was won by Scotland’s Liv Conlon, who runs The Property Stagers.

Start that adventure now and get set to turn your great business into an award-winning one by entering our awards today!
