The Wales Start-Up Awards have been launched to recognise and celebrate the achievements of new businesses across Wales.
Sponsored by NatWest Entrepreneurial Spark, these awards will be different to many others in Wales. For the first time ever, it will be an award ceremony that is exclusive to start-ups only - to businesses which started trading on or after 1 May, 2013. Many of the category sponsors are successful Welsh companies that were once start-ups themselves and appreciate the hard work and dedication that many entrepreneurs put in at the start of their business.
There are 14 sector categories which include:
- creative and digital
- life science
- leisure and tourism
All entrants will be entered automatically for the 4 regional awards:
- Cardiff Capital
- Swansea Bay
- North Wales
- Rural Wales
The winners are announced at an informal setting at the award-winning Depot in Cardiff on Friday 16 September, 2016.
The deadline for entries is 5pm on Friday 1 July 2016.
