The Startups Awards will feature a brand new category at this year’s competition.

Judges for the Business Plan of the Year Award will be recognising the company that can demonstrate the strongest business strategy.

Whether your goal is to open two more shops or float on the stock exchange, it is important for every successful start-up to delineate its targets and map out every stage of its development.

Judges will be looking for the company that best understands its market and competition, has paid attention to detail and done its maths.

The successful company will also have shown it has implemented and reviewed its strategy.

Sage, which is sponsoring the award, said the businesses in this new category encapsulate the best of Britain’s new innovators. “The spirit of entrepreneurship that led to the creation of Sage 25 years ago still exists within the company today and we have always encouraged small business success,” said Lisa Graveling, spokesperson for Sage.

“We are proud to be sponsoring this award, which recognises and rewards the most forward thinking business plans and ideas.”

The award is open to both established start-up businesses and those companies that have not yet launched but have completed their business plan.

Deadline for entry is 9 June. For further information, please visit
