This award is for someone who is driven and committed to the success of their venture, in spite of adversity. A person who leads innovation, and who in doing so has created jobs and increased economic development in the community in which they are based.

The winning business must have been trading in excess of two full financial years so that its increase in turnover, profitability and net worth can be evidenced and indicates that there is relative longevity in the business.

The product or service provided must be original, having arisen from a hitherto unrecognised opportunity or an unsatisfied demand. Or, if you have taken over an existing business, then we would expect you to have radically improved its performance as a direct result of your direction, innovation and determination.
