After helping to judge entries for the Scale-Up Awards 2022 over the summer, we’re looking forward to the announcement of the finalists on 13 September.

Run by Business Leader, the Scale-Up Awards are aimed at fast-growing, innovative and ambitious UK businesses. Senior members of BKL Advance judged entries across five categories that reflect the variety of growing businesses we support:

Technology Scale-Up Of The Year

From the businesses we work with, we know that tech companies are among the most innovative and ambitious.

As sponsors of the Technology Scale-Up Of The Year award, we have the honour of presenting it to the winning finalist at the awards night in November. Simon Eaton, our Business Services Partner specialising in tech clients, will be presenting the award.

Family Business Of The Year

As well as advising many families through BKL’s family wealth service, we appreciate how family bonds can drive business growth.

The #SBS Small Business Award

We enjoy working with startups with ambitions to grow. Petra Deters, one of our Business Services Directors and an experienced outsourcing specialists, says:

I read amazing stories of overcoming obstacles and resilience. Stories of people caring for others and caring for the planet.

People in finance often talk about the big players with big numbers. It was refreshing and humbling to read about small businesses who with small means but energy and vision created a livelihood for themselves and others, they are rightly proud of. People who often make a big difference to their local community simply because they care and took the time to understand what that local community needed.”

Business Leader of the Year

We enjoy building trusted advisory relationships with business owner-managers and other senior staff; recognising and supporting the role of individuals in making a difference to their organisations. Some of this guidance is provided through our outsourced CFO service.

Overall Scale-Up Business Award

Supporting entrepreneurial businesses as our clients, and learning the inspiring stories of the award entrants, gets to the heart of one of BKL’s values: Think Big. Reimagining what’s possible; welcoming ideas, exploring them and making them work.

We’d like to thank all of the Scale-Up Awards entrants for sharing their accomplishments. Whether or not you become a finalist, keep thinking big!

We look forward to congratulating the finalists in person at the Scale-Up Awards in London on 3 November. There’s more information here on the Scale-Up Awards website.
