SHAPING the Future of Portsmouth is proud to sponsor the Start Up Business of the Year Award for 2012.
This is such an important and worthwhile category in the Business Excellence Awards and we want to celebrate the success of start-ups.
Shaping Portsmouth has a dedicated Business & Enterprise work stream, and this coalition of businesses, educational organisations and public sector representatives is committed to encouraging the number of start-up companies with the aim of achieving economic growth.
After years when the economy has stalled and unemployment is rising, the role of small businesses is central to regeneration.
Setting up a business can be daunting so we are privileged to join the celebration of Portsmouth’s enterprising people.
