That however is not the case with the recently launched National Business Awards. Now in their 14th year, these awards are aimed at businesses across the board - from the large corporates to the small startups. No matter what industry or sector or indeed size of business, entrants all effectively have a chance of winning.

So in no particular order, this year’s categories are:

  • The Corporate Citizenship Award

  • The Growth Business of the Year

  • The Innovation Award

  • The Inflexion International Growth Business of the Year

  • The New Business of the Year

  • The Duke of York New Entrepreneur of the Year

  • The Santander Small to Medium-sized Business of the Year

  • The Social Enterprise of the Year

  • The Blackberry Business Enabler of the Year

There are also 3 categories where entrants can be nominated, namely:

  • The QBE FTSE 100 Business of the Year

  • The Ashridge Business School Leader of the Year

  • The Excellence in Business Award

The Awards site goes into detail on the criteria for each of these categories.
