About the National Business Awards

Smith & Williamson has once again partnered with the National Business Awards to find and celebrate the country’s most enterprising and successful businesses. We are proud to sponsor the Scale-Up Business of the Year award for the second year.


The National Business Awards are the UK’s premier, cross-industry accolades for enterprise excellence. Now entering their 16th year, the awards ultimately connect the nations’ business leaders through its annual ceremony and year-round thought leadership programme.

Our category

The Smith & Williamson Scale-Up Business of the Year Award celebrates a market leading increase in sales, headcount, profitability, market share or geographical expansion over the last three years. This award will go to the business demonstrating the highest levels of growth and a robust plan for sustainable financial performance.

The award ceremony

The award ceremony will take place on 14 November 2017 at Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London.  Attended by 1,200 business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians and media representatives, it provides a unique opportunity to network, exchange ideas and celebrate with the UK’s top business leaders.
