MP ENCOURAGES LOCAL SMALL BUSINESSES TO CELEBRATE ACHIEVEMENTS

31st August 2018

NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR FEDERATION OF SMALL BUSINESS AWARDS

Marion Fellows, Motherwell and Wishaw MP and the SNP’s Westminster Small Business spokesperson, has this week encouraged local small businesses to enter into the Federation of Small Business’s 2019 awards.

Businesses of less than 250 employees can enter into a number of categories including Micro Business (less than 10 employees); Start-Up and Scale-Up Business; Family Business; Young Entrepreneur (aged under 31); Community Business; Digital Innovation of the year and more.

Nominations are free and close on 11 January 2019 for Scottish businesses with category winners progressing to the UK Finals.

Commenting, Mrs Fellows said:

There are some fantastic small businesses across Scotland, but especially in Motherwell and Wishaw. I would encourage everyone to consider entering to showcase and celebrate their achievements over the past year.

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They deserve to have their contributions to society and communities recognised.

Taking part allows businesses the opportunity to reflect and build on the work they already do to encourage innovation.

There are a number of categories, so there is likely something for every business. Even making the shortlist is a great achievement. It’s also free and relatively easy to enter.

I hope to be celebrating alongside our fantastic small businesses next year!
