A Great Opportunity for Essex Businesses

Have you heard of the Essex BIG Business Boost? If you’re an Essex-based small business or entrepreneur, you should have done.

The BIG Business Boost is a free business competition offering Essex businesses and entrepreneurs the chance to win thousands of pounds in cash and business support to help boost their business.

Unlike most business competitions, the BBB is not necessarily looking for businesses with the biggest profit or turnover, instead it’s about finding exciting businesses with innovative concepts, celebrating them, and helping them become even better.

Businesses can enter the 2016 BIG Business Boost in one of FIVE categories, which celebrate the diversity of entrepreneurship across Essex. The competition is open to any Essex-based business with 15 employees or less;

  • The BIG Business Boost Award – the overall award for Essex’s most innovative business –  WIN £1,500 + a business support package
  • The Young Entrepreneur Award – for business owners aged from 16 to 30 years of age –  WIN £1,500 + a business support package
  • The Women in Business Award – for the county’s most innovative female-led businesses –  WIN £1,500 + a business support package
  • The Disability Entrepreneur Award (pre-start) – for eligible to Essex-based individuals with a disability, with a great commercially sustainable business idea/plan to be the next Essex Entrepreneur –  WIN £2,000 + a business support package
  • The Personal Triumph Award – a nomination-only award celebrating businesses and businesspeople in Essex with a disability who have triumphed in the face of adversity –  WIN £2,000 + a business support package

Entry is online, free and only takes 300 words. Click here to find out more about the Essex BIG Business Boost.

The BIG Business Boost is funded by Essex County Council’s Essex Innovation Programme and the Employment and Skills Unit.
