Yes, we’re delighted to report that Imaginatal has been shortlisted for an award in business innovation! We’re so excited to be recognised by these prestigious awards- now in their 24th year. It has been such a tough 18 months and we are incredibly proud of how resilient our team has been throughout covid.
The awards aim to celebrate enterprises from across the county – an especially important goal after the rollercoaster 2021 has been so far for small businesses. 110 different organisations ranging across dozens of different sectors were submitted for the competition.
A team of judges including representatives from Businesslive, The University of Gloucestershire and a variety of local sponsors gathered last month to discuss the entries. Each submitted business was called to detail how they had grown and strengthened over the last year, despite the difficult trading conditions. The judges then decided on the shortlist for categories such as Young Businessperson of the Year, Family Business of the Year and – in our case- the Business Innovation Award.
We’re up against two other businesses and results will be announced in a live ceremony on the 15th of September. We can’t wait for this chance to come together and celebrate with our fantastic Gloucestershire business community. Full coverage of finalists is being published on GloucestershireLive and BusinessLive, as well as in print in the Gloucestershire Echo and Gloucester Citizen.
We’ll keep you informed about any announcements but, in the meantime, you can keep up with all the excitement by following #GlosBizAwards across all social channels.
