The Amazon ScaleUp Awards by Business Leader Magazine were launched to provide a platform for the UK’s most successful companies.

A scale-up business is defined as one that has an average annualised return of at least 20% in the past three years, with at least 10 employees at the beginning of the period.

They contribute a huge amount to the UK economy and according to the Scaleup Institute generated more than £1.3tn in combined turnover in the last financial year; compared to a turnover of £1.9tn by all SMEs combined.

Scale-up businesses also employ approximately 3.4 million people across all sectors and areas of the UK economy.

The Amazon ScaleUp Awards, brought to you by Business Leader Magazine will highlight the leading companies and individuals that are operating in and around this space – providing a platform for scale-up entrepreneurs, SMEs and corporates to celebrate their success.

Andrew Scott, event founder, commented: “These awards are attracting huge interest from the UK’s most successful businesses and this event will provide an opportunity for everybody to come together before the main awards in March 2020. We’re excited to be working with Amazon on these awards and to have brought together a stellar judging panel.”
