FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards - Greater London

30 April 2019

Our business support portal, London Growth Hub joined the Federation of Small Businesses in celebrating small businesses in London at the FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards on 17th April, at the Royal Horseguards Hotel. The Growth Hub sponsored two award categories at the event - the Scale Up and International Business of the Year Awards.

The winner of the Scale Up Business of the Year was The Cheeky Panda, an innovative company that offers the tissue market a sustainable and health conscious alternative. Cofounded by Julie Chen and Chris Forbes, the company makes tissues and wipes from virgin bamboo, which are free from harsh chemicals found in regular tissues.

The winner of the International Business of the Year was Merci Maman, which creates personalised jewellery in London, Paris and Berlin. Founded in 2007 by Béatrice de Montille, Merci Maman is a favourite of bloggers and celebrities around the world.

Winners from the London area final will be heading to the UK finals at the Battersea Evolution, London on 23 May 2019.
