Entrepreneurs come from all types of backgrounds and set up businesses for a whole variety of differing reasons – there are, however, a number of traits common amongst most entrepreneurs, from drive, ambition, vision and tenacity to inspirational leadership, inventiveness and confidence.

This award sets out to recognise and acknowledge the application of those special qualities within the context of starting, growing and sustaining a successful south London-based business.

  • Visionary leadership
  • Development of inspirational relationships internally and externally
  • Overcoming barriers to success and obstacles to growth
  • Strong financial performance results
  • Significant current business growth achievements
  • A clear, concise and impactful plan for sustained growth
  • Innovation and differentiation within the business
