22 June 2015

In association with HSBC Private Bank and The Supper Club, we recently announced the shortlist for the fifth annual UK Private Business Awards. The finalists were selected from the hundreds of entries received from private businesses across the UK.

The four categories we are really excited about are High Growth Business, Rising Star, Technology Innovation and Entrepreneur of the Year Award. The shortlist was judged on a variety of things from growth strategy, compound annual growth rate (CAGR), innovation, their vision, commercial viability and brand recognition. 

The competition was fierce with all candidates within these categories demonstrating talent, innovation and an outstanding work ethic. Congratulations to the following:
