Startups Awards in 9th year

NatWest are delighted to be sponsoring this year’s Startups Awards, celebrating the most creative, innovative and ambitious new businesses from across the UK.

The 2012 Startups Awards take place at London's Kensington Roof Gardens on December 7. The winners will be announced in these pages.

Now in its ninth year, the Startups Awards has unearthed some of the UK’s finest entrepreneurial businesses, and shone a spotlight on the start-up market. Previous winners have gone on to enjoy phenomenal success, including:

  • BeatThatQuote.com
  • Ella’s Kitchen
  • Glasses Direct
  • The Book Depository
  • Naked Wines
  • and most recently The Cambridge Satchel company

"As a judge at this year’s awards, I have found the quality and volume of entries outstanding. To me, this event goes a long way to highlighting the strength of the UK start ups market - despite the continuing economic challenges. Although times are clearly tough, there is an unsuppressed enthusiasm for business throughout the UK."

Abe Tilling, NatWest Regional Managing Director, London and South East, Business Banking
