The Biz Awards are proud to be different. They’re not about being the biggest or the most

    profitable. The Biz Awards are about determination, focus and perseverance. The Biz Awards are

    about you. Your story, your journey and your experience.

We recognise and celebrate the hurdles, the challenges, the strength of spirit and the sheer brick

    walls that business men and women have overcome so that they can live their business dream.

Back in 2007 when the awards were first launched, we set out to uncover and recognise the

    difficulties that people here in Yorkshire had faced in order to get their business idea’s off the

    ground. And we also wanted to recognise those established businesses who have kept on fighting

    to survive and ultimately, to thrive.

    In a climate where running any business should be celebrated we appeal to you to give yourself the recognition you deserve. It’s your time to give yourself a pat on the back and thank your team

    or your family for their support. To help you decide whether your story should be heard, here are

    some examples of adversity but don’t forget, you may have your own unique journey to share:

o Being unable to source finance conventional funding not available

    o Disability

    o Overcoming educational set backs

    o Significant environmental (business environment) factors that have affected the business

    o Any other factors you believe would prevent most businesses from succeeding
