ENTRIES are now open for the Elevator Awards being held in Aberdeen later this year.
The event, due to be held at Ardoe House Hotel in June, showcases entrepreneurial talent, business growth, success and individual excellence.
Three new categories, Founder of the Year, Social Enterprise of the Year and Young Entrepreneur of the Year, have been added to the 21st annual awards.
Professor Gary McEwan, Elevator chief executive officer, said: “Entering a new decade we felt it was right to reshape some of our award categories, reflecting not only changes within the entrepreneurial landscape but also the pace of change within Elevator.
“Our emphasis for 2020 is to recognise people, businesses and products which are making an impact on Scotland’s economy. More and more we are witnessing the younger generation break the glass ceiling and devote their time and energy to build successful businesses, along with those who are hungry to give back through new ways of thinking. The 2020 Elevator Awards is the perfect platform to showcase this success at a National level.”
Russell Whyte, director of Commercial Banking at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: “We are incredibly proud to be sponsoring the Elevator Awards for another year. Recognising the importance of entrepreneurial spirit and passion, the awards celebrate the significant contribution that positive leaders and companies of all scale make to the region.
“This is what shapes the future direction of our economy, so it is crucial that we foster this enthusiasm and give credit to the hard work that is evident right now.”
Entries are now open until March 16 to all businesses with headquarters in Scotland. Finalists will be announced in April.
