It’s an uphill task for anyone starting a new business.
So energetic entrepreneurs embarking on their first business venture or established business people striking out on their own for the first time deserve recognition for their efforts.
Business Hub Kirklees is once again sponsoring the category of New Business of the Year in the Examiner Business of the Year Awards 2016.
If your business began trading after January 1, 2014, why not enter this award and receive recognition for your hard work and determination? You may have brought a fantastic new product to market, found a niche area to focus on or overcome all odds to achieve success. Tell us about your business, your market place, your performance and your future plans to win the recognition you deserve.
Last year’s winner, Pivot Care and Educational Consultancy, was formed as a residential children’s home for eight to 18-year-olds needing a safe, secure and loving environment for young people to flourish and return to their family home, foster care or adoption with the skills to succeed in life.
Now the firm supports young people from an academic, behavioural and psychological aspect and supports the schools they attend through training, staff deployment and support.
The Lockwood-based company uses innovative methods to bring social care and education together to meet the needs of young people and the organisations working with them.
Its educational consultancy works with several local authorities and scorers of schools on alternative provision and educational programmes. It has also had a major impact on the lives of others through employment and training.
