17th Annual Ulster Bank Business Achievers Awards Launched

Do you know any established business, start-up or entrepreneur who deserves recognition?

Make sure you tell them about the 2010 Ulster Bank Business Achievers Awards which launched in August. Perhaps your own company is deserving of recognition for your efforts. Now in their 17th year the awards aim to celebrate entrepreneurship and success across Ireland. Companies will be judged on a variety of merits including sales performance, market share, growth, company milestones, innovative new products or services and successful achievements by key personnel.

Following the initial judging process at the preliminary stage of the awards, competing businesses are shortlisted for provincial awards. Provincial award winners will then go on to compete for the national title and individual title at an all-island awards ceremony in April 2011. Businesses can enter themselves in up to two of the following eight categories: –

  1. Innovation and Emerging Technology Award
  2. International Business Award
  3. Social Entrepreneurship Award
  4. Best Business Start Up Award
  5. Family Run Business Award
  6. Green Business Award
  7. Agriculture, Food & Drink Award
  8. Service Business Award

The national Business Achiever winner 2010 will win a specially commissioned Business Achievers Award trophy, business laptop, a €50,000 media bursary courtesy of the Irish Independent, and an executive programme at Harvard Business School.

To enter simply follow the online process, first register your company and then complete the entry form as instructed. Entries will close on Tuesday, 30th November.
