At Ideas Forums, we pride ourselves on being more than just awards programmes; we're a thriving ecosystem for entrepreneurs and a powerful platform for partners.
We offer customised engagement opportunities that resonate with a diverse and robust community of start-ups to scale-ups.
Our year-round exposure goes beyond traditional event sponsorship, offering you consistent brand visibility and high-impact networking. With our data-driven approach, we generate highly targeted leads tailored to your KPIs.
Our programmes are not just awards, they are fuelled by a strong community, providing countless opportunities for businesses to showcase their achievements & innovations and for sponsors to deeply engage with the most impressive UK businesses.
The Great British Entrepreneur Awards is more than just an event; it's a landmark celebration in the entrepreneurial calendar.
Dubbed the 'Grammys of Entrepreneurship,' we annually bring together a community of the nation's most imaginative and inspiring entrepreneurs at London's prestigious Grosvenor House.
With over 5,000 entries and 1,500 attendees each year, the Awards serve as an expansive platform for recognising the courageous spirit and ingenuity found in enterprises across the UK.
Founded 25 years ago by Professor Dylan Jones-Evans in Wales, the Fast Growth 50 stands as the most accurate and regionally-led index spotlighting the UK's most rapidly expanding companies.
Covering six pivotal regions—including Wales, Scotland, London, the Midlands & East of England, the North of England, and the South of England—our index is a rigorously curated showcase of businesses experiencing significant turnover growth over a two-year period.
Far more than just a list, Fast Growth 50 is creating a network of local heroes across the UK, pointing investors, stakeholders, and the media towards enterprises that aren't just scaling but are shaping the future of business in the UK.
The Start-Up Awards serve as the premier platform for identifying and uplifting the UK's most promising new businesses. With an impressive 3,000 applications received annually from ventures in their initial three years of operation, we have our fingers on the pulse of entrepreneurial talent across various regions in the UK.
But we're far more than just an awards programme; we are building dynamic communities to support, celebrate, and champion entrepreneurs at their most pivotal stages.
