Nectar Small Business Awards: could you scoop 2k prize?

Could your business be crowned small business of the year, or do you reckon you could scoop the prize for best tradesperson or entrepreneur? Nectar has extended its Small Business Awards entry deadline to Sunday.

There's a range of categories and if you get top spot in one of them you’ll nab £2,000 and 50,000 Nectar points, plus some welcome PR for your business.

The Dragon and the pot of gold

Previous award winners have included Hungry House and Not on the High Street, and this year the judging panel is being headed up by businesswoman and Dragons' Den judge Sarah Willingham.

As well as bagging the money and the Nectar points, the winner of each category also gets to compete for the chance to join the Nectar Business Round Table to receive expert business advice from Willingham and other judges.

The deadline for the awards was originally earlier in the month but, as co-judge and Nectar Business MD Will Shuckburgh explained, “With recent events and their impact on the UK market we thought the nation’s small businesses would appreciate some extra time to enter this year.”

So if you’re keen to join in but haven’t got your entry together yet, now's your chance!

How to enter the Small Business Awards

The awards are free to enter, and this year two new categories have been added: best use of technology and apprentice of the year.

You can see the full list of award categories and find out how to enter on the Nectar Business hub.
