The Ulster Bank Business Achievers Awards

by Startacus Admin

If you are a business based on the island of Ireland, don’t miss out on being considered for the Ulster Bank Business Achiever Awards. Now in their 19th year, the Awards are primarily aimed at giving recognition to the achievements of ulster bank Irish businesses, both North and South of the border.

So are you eligible to apply?Well, it’s simply a matter of fitting into one of the designated categories, of which there are 8 in total:

- Woman Led Business
- Best Business Startup
- Innovation and Emerging Technology Award
- Best SME
- Food and Drink
- Social Enterprise
- International Business
- Agri-Business

The judging panels which will be made up of industry experts and seasoned local entrepreneurs will select will shortlist three companies in each category to go through to a provincial ceremony. From there, one winner from each category and from each of the provinces will go forward to the national final.
Businesses will be assessed on a range of matters - from their achievements and financial performance through to their importance within their local areas.

So what’s on offer for the winner?
Well at a provincial level, there are countless press coverage and promotion opportunities, a trophy as well as a pretty nifty video that can be used as a marketing and promotion tool.
The overall winner will receive a €50,000 publishing bursary with the Irish Independent, exclusive business mentoring from Enterprise Ireland, a dedicated communications workshop given by leading PR, MArketing, Sales and Communications specialists, a Laptop and last but not least an Ulster Bank Business Achievers Award trophy!

Pretty worthwhile prize then!

If you think you’ve got what it takes to be a winner, enter now via the Achievers Award site. Entries must all be in by 28th February 2013 - so best get going!
