20th anniversary

The Amazon Growing Business Awards

28 November 2018 - The Brewery, London
The Amazon Growing Business Awards were created by Real Business back in 1998. Twenty years on and the awards are the most established and respected celebration of SME and entrepreneurial success in the UK.

As we reach our 20th Anniversary year, The Growing Business Awards is entering an exciting new phase. We are drawing on the calibre and commitment of our two decades of incredible alumni to launch a year-round programme of events, as well as a high profile series of digital content landmarks on Real Business.


Created by Real Business, headlined by Amazon, the Amazon Growing Business Awards are the most credible and highly valued recognition of growing businesses. Entering their 21st year, these are the accolades that UK SMEs really want to win!


The Growing Business Network brings together our exceptional alumni, in person – through a year-round series of educational and networking events – as well as through content, with high profile editorial landmarks shared with Real Business’s unparalleled SME audience.


The Growing Business Awards alumni represent 20 years of exceptional UK growth stories. Winners and finalists, across all sectors, have gone on to become internationally renowned businesses. Their continued commitment is what sets this Awards programme apart.


Sponsorship of the Growing Business Awards is not just about a logo at a glitzy awards ceremony. We offer a bespoke year-round content marketing and event campaign that allows your company to communicate consistently and effectively with your target SME audience.

For powerful brand positioning, unrivalled distribution channels, including Real Business, and incredible business development opportunities through continued access to our shortlists and alumni, sponsorship of the Growing Business Awards programme will get you in front of the people you really want to meet.
