Queen’s Awards for Enterprise reveals 2017 winners
Startups.co.uk's new owner MVF recognised for outstanding achievement in international trade
MVF, the fast-growth tech company that acquired Startups.co.uk earlier this year, is amongst this year's winners of the Queen's Awards for Enterprise, which recognises businesses for outstanding achievement in innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility.
As well as being invited to a Royal reception at Buckingham Palace, hosted by The Queen, winners are able to fly The Queen's Award flag at their office and use the emblem on their marketing materials.
The Awards says its winners report benefiting from worldwide recognition, increased commercial value, greater press coverage and a boost to staff morale.
MVF, a Startups 100 and Young Gun-founded lead generation company, was recognised in the international trade category for the second time, which required it to have made a minimum of £100,000 in overseas sales in its first year of trading and achieved outstanding growth.
Other notable winners include Conversion Rate Experts, the London-based website improvement start-up used by Google, Facebook and Apple, in the innovation category; professional services company KPMG for promoting social mobility and environment-first water brand Belu Water in the sustainable development category.
Michael Teixeira, CEO of MVF, commented: “I am incredibly proud that we have been awarded a Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade by Her Majesty The Queen.
“To be recognised by the most prestigious awards in the UK is a real honour, and one that I share with every single person in the company who has helped to make MVF such a vibrant and successful international business.”
