Today we're excited to launch the Growing Business Awards 2014, a recognition of Britain's most exciting and entrepreneurial growing businesses.

Held in association with Lloyds Bank and supported by the CBI, The Growing Business Awards are the most established and respected national recognition of SME and entrepreneurial success.

Since 1999 the Awards have identified many of Britain’s finest high-growth businesses, including now-household names such as Innocent, Tyrrells, EasyJet, Phones 4U, Zoopla and LoveFilm.

This year we’re launching two brand new categories. Retail Hero will recognise outstanding growing businesses from eCommerce to the High Street and Brand Builder of the Year will celebrate the UK’s most recognisable new household names.

Other categories recognise Britain’s greatest growing manufacturers, exporters, digital companies and entrepreneurs. See the full category listings here.

Shortlisted entries will have the chance to meet our esteemed panel of judges including Zoopla CEO and founder Alex Chesterman, serial entrepreneurs Dr Stephen Fear and Lara Morgan, and Martyn Dawes, the founder of Coffee Nation.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony at the London Marriott Grosvenor Square on the 25th November.

Nominations are open now and will close on the 19th September. For more information and to submit your free nomination, visit the Growing Business Awards site.
