Awards and competitions are a great way to gain recognition for Start-ups to Small/Medium business. Especially in terms of getting National press and building up awareness of your brand and you.
We (Squid) won A Lloyds Creative Enterprsie Award last year at the NACUE National Varsity Pitch Competition and the Peoples Choice Award. Totally nerve racking experience standing on a stage speaking to hundreds of people whilst being filmed for live web cam! But, it is great fun and you get a real sense of achievement from it.
As you can see above the Squidders are the faces of the Newly Launched Lloyds TSB Enterprise Award scheme. Do apply if you fit into one of these categories:
- Studying at University or graduated from University in the last five years
- You founded or co-founded a business in England, Scotland or Wales
- Your company has been trading for more than one year.
