Winning an award can really spur a start-up on - it helps build followers through increased exposure and cements the company's reputation. For this Smarta webchat on winning awards we are joined by two former Smarta 100 winners who will give their insider tips and tricks on the art of winning.
Simon Duffy, a 2010 Smarta 100 winner with his male grooming brand Bulldog, is a multi-award winning entrepreneur. Bulldog products have won the Shortlist magazine grooming award, Men's Health USA grooming award and more recently Duffy's business scooped the Exporter of the Year gong at the Grocer magazine Gold Awards.
Adam Baker from Blottr, the citizen journalism site, bagged the Smarta 100 award last year when the company was also named as Innovative Business of the Year in the Startups Gold awards.
Both Duffy and Baker have built their business in recent years and they have managed to build an impressive fanbase - there's no doubt that the awards they have won have played a part in their success. They will discuss everything from why they decided to enter awards and what you need to do to be ready to win to capitalising on winning.
The two entrepreneurs will also share their thoughts on winning the Smarta 100 and explain how they made the most of the exposure to take their businesses to the next level.
So if you are thinking about putting your business forward for an award, this is an unmissable opportunity to find out exactly what it takes to win. Get your questions ready and join us for the Smarta webchat on entering and winning awards.
