Ian Wallis editorial director of Growing Business said “The Fast Growth Business Awards never disappoint in terms of the ingenuity, ambition and hard graft of the companies that enter. The awards have a fantastic track record of picking out brands on the cusp of great things. Three examples of previous winners stand out for me, although there are many more: Maximuscle was sold to GlaxoSmithKline for £162m; Multimap was sold to Microsoft for an estimated £30m-plus; and LOVEFiLM sold a 58% stake to
Amazon in a deal valuing the business at around £200m.. For founders, employees and investors alike such deals are the culmination of what goes into that determination to be the best in their field – and to let everyone know about it.”
The deadline for entries is 24 th June 2011 and winners will be announced at an awards ceremony, held at the Marriott Grosvenor Square on 4 th October 2011.
