Brought to you by Business Leader, the Scale-Up Awards celebrate high-growth companies and the entrepreneurs that run them. A record number of entries were received to the 15 award categories and the panel of judges is currently scrutinising them to determine the finalists in each category, which will be announced on the 8th of September. 

Andrew Scott, Founder of the Scale-Up Awards, comments on Russ joining the awards panel: “With Xledger winning the Technology Scale-Up Award at last year’s event, Russ knows exactly what is required for a company to take home the gold. Therefore, he is the perfect addition to our prestigious judging panel, and I can’t wait to see who he and the other judges will announce as finalists at this year’s event.”
