The Scale-Up Awards 2022 kicks off in style


Following last year’s inaugural event, the revamped Scale-Up Awards are back in 2022!

The Awards are organised by Business Leader Magazine, the leading media company for entrepreneurs, founders, CEO’s, investors, advisors and business leaders.

The 2020 event received more than 400 award entries and a team of judges that included Piers Linney (Ex-Dragons’ Den star and investor), Jackie Fast (former The Apprentice star and businesswoman), Caprice (model and businesswoman), Irene Graham OBE (CEO of ScaleUp Institute) and many more spent over a month scrutinising and scoring the entrants.

The winners are made up of some of the UK’s finest minds and businesses, who have all been working around the clock during the COVID-19 pandemic to keep driving their businesses forward and looking after their staff.
