Nominations are now open for the 2017 UK Private Business Awards – often referred to as the Diamonds – which celebrate the best of UK private businesses and their contribution to communities and the UK economy.
The Awards are run by PwC, and see private businesses across the country nominating themselves in one or more of the 10 categories, including Technology Innovation of the Year Award, High Growth Business of the Year Award, and Private Business of the Year Award.
Brian Henderson, partner and UK Private Business Awards leader at PwC, commented: “The UK Private Business Awards are now in their seventh year and celebrate the best of the private sector. The Awards recognise achievements and the important contribution that entrepreneurs and private businesses make to the UK economy.
“We’re looking for the UK’s brightest entrepreneurs and private businesses to tell us why they deserve to be recognised. The Awards categories allow a broad range of companies and individuals to participate and reflect the ever increasing diversity in the private business landscape. Last year’s diverse and innovative group of winners show that this is the most vibrant part of our economy.”
The nomination period runs from 16 January 2017 to 24 March 2017. The deadline for submitting a full entry form is 3 May 2017. The winners will be announced at a gala dinner on 14 September 2017 in London.
