Sponsor in the Spotlight

Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is sponsoring the Small Business of the Year category at this year’s Buckinghamshire Business Awards.

You can see who the finalists are in this – and the other 11 categories – on the awards homepage.

We spoke with Ian Barham, Partnership Manager at Buckinghamshire LEP, about their sponsorship:

"Buckinghamshire LEP have been delighted to sponsor the Small Business of the Year Award at the Buckinghamshire Business Awards 2019. We are proud to be known as the Entrepreneurial Heart of Britain, reflecting our status as a great place to start and grow a new business.

"As the organisation responsible for developing the Local Industrial Strategy for Buckinghamshire, the judging for this category has given us great insight into the plans, hopes and aspirations of some of our most ambitious small businesses.

"We look forward to seeing these businesses continue to innovate and grow over the coming months and years."
