Top 100 awards celebrate the best in small business 

The EB100 was established in 2022 to provide a comprehensive ranking of the top 100 SMEs in the UK. The awards cover a range of industries, including technology, media, finance, healthcare, and more. This year, the event was judged by a panel of 50 industry experts, including Piers Linney from BBC’s Dragon’s Den, Flavilla Fongang, a serial entrepreneur, and Charlie Mullins OBE, Founder of Pimlico Plumbers. 

The awards ceremony was attended by a diverse group of business professionals, entrepreneurs, and executives, who took the opportunity to exchange stories, network, and find out more about each other’s roles. The event provided an excellent opportunity to recognise outstanding customer service, performance, diversity, sustainability, innovation, and leadership.
