The Lloyds Bank National Business Awards 2017

Enter the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards for the Duke of York University Entrepreneurship category

Enter the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, with entries being accepted until midnight on Friday 9th June 2017. 

Now in its 16th year, the awards permit any company within the UK, whether public, private or third sector to enter, regardless of size or industry. The awards have a range of categories suited for any successful organisation to tell their story; from large private and public companies through to thriving entrepreneurial businesses, universities, promising start-ups and established SMEs.

Designed to inspire and measure university commitment to entrepreneurship, the Duke of York University Entrepreneurship Award is one of the newest categories; judged by leading industry professionals, this award will measure university commitment to entrepreneurship, focusing on the level and quality of enterprise societies, use of alumni entrepreneurs, small business internships, and the extent to which the careers service offers start up advice. 

Entries are submitted via an online form here and the full entry criteria is available to view before payment. There’s still time to craft a winning entry, as entries close at midnight on Friday 9th June 2017.  

This year’s awards continues the celebration of the Best of British Ambition, and in the previous year, the National Business Awards ceremony welcomed over 1200 business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians and media representatives at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane. Presented by the BBC’s Louise Minchin, the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, which is organised by UBM EMEA, welcomed former Leader of the House of Commons Lord William Hague as headline speaker. 

As well as recognising university entrepreneurship, the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards have previously awarded brands across every corner of the UK such as The Body Coach, Trunki, BOL Foods, Hotel Chocolat, Handmade Burger Co. and Greene King’s Rooney Anand; some of the categories include the Samsung Innovation of the Year, the Lloyds Bank Mid-Market of the year, through to the Lloyds Bank Positive Social Impact award, and the Duke of York Award New Entrepreneur of the Year.

Previously described as the “Oscars of great British business” by former Prime Minister David Cameron, the prestigious ceremony is hosted at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane on 14th November 2017. 

Tom Broughton, Group Brand Director of the National Business Awards said: “It’s great to see companies large and small and in every sector helping drive economic growth, and following on from a successful awards ceremony in 2016, we look forward to recognising and celebrating the quality and diversity of businesses again this year.”
