Does your business make a positive impact on people, planet or place? This week is your final chance to showcase your venture with the Cambridge News Social Entrepreneurship Award 2017.
Final week for Social Entrepreneurship nominations
Allia, along with Cambridge News, is looking for the Cambridgeshire business that has made, or will make, the most significant impact on society.
The initiative could be operating at a local, national or international level, but must demonstrate significant ability or potential to make a transformational difference.
This initiative could be delivering social impact in terms of:
• the audience it reaches
• a ground-breaking innovation
• demonstrating quality
• building awareness of an issue that affects society
The Cambridge News launched the awards on 1 December at a reception held at The Gonville Hotel. Guests heard from News MD Richard Duxbury, and had the chance to network in the hotel’s recently refurbished bar. The winners will be announced at an opulent awards dinner at King’s College on Thursday, March 23.
Winning one of these awards has proved hugely beneficial for previous nominees, who have gone on to make the most of their title, not least in attracting new talent to join their staff. Last year's winner, Simprints, share how the awards helped them here.
Allia is a not-for-profit organisation that supports businesses - through flexible workspace, social finance and free business support - so that they can grow and create positive impact, on their communities and on the planet.
