The Business Awards

The E Factor Group Small Business Award


Please note this Award is different from all the others. As a pilot we are trailing a different approach to the entry process when we get to the short list stage, i.e. determining who will be the outright winner and who will be the two equal runners-up.

70% of the marks for this award will come from the written process.  30% of the marks will come from a verbal ‘pitch’.

The three shortlisted companies will be invited to attend the Business Hive on Tuesday 21st April and do a 10/15 minute ‘pitch’ on why they should be chosen as the outright winner of the Award.  The ‘pitch’ will be in front of a Business Hive audience, so great profiling, and a panel of three judges will mark.

Please ensure you are available to do this ‘pitch’ on 21st April before entering this Award.

The Judges Want…

Businesses which are able, committed and enthusiastic and which have set themselves on the road to achieving clearly laid out goals for future growth and success…
