The number and quality of entries for the 2011 Growing Business Awards has been remarkable this year.But with entries closing on September 30, there isn’t much time left for you to enter the awards. The three new categories introduced for the 2011 Growing Business Awards – Made in Britain, Local Hero and Digital Elite awards – have proved particularly popular. Between them, these categories account for a third of the overall entries, while Entrepreneur of the Year and Company of the Year have also proved popular again. Fast-growth businesses, large and small, have entered this year – from those employing more than 1,000 to businesses with fewer than 10 employees. And entries have been received from organisations operating across the length and breadth of the country, from England, Scotland and Wales. Sectors represented in the awards span across manufacturing, engineering, transport, healthcare, tech, HR, retail, leisure and many more. This year’s awards will truly be representative of a diverse British economy. Now in their 14th year, the Growing Business Awards, hosted by Real Business and the CBI, aim to be bigger than ever. Held on November 14, marking the opening of Global Entrepreneurship Week, the award ceremony will give you the opportunity to network with top entrepreneurs. Past attendees include Theo Paphitis, Sir John Madejski, Peter Jones, GK Noon, Toni Mascolo, Julie Meyer, Bill Gates, Sir Philip Green, Duncan Bannatyne, John Caudwell, and many others.
