Smarta is proud to announce the launch of the Smarta 100, our search for Britain's smartest businesses.
From the West Highlands to Westfield we're looking for the high-street heroes, market traders on a mission, eBay entrepreneurs, budding Bransons and the emerging big businesses of tomorrow.
We want to hear from the most exciting, promising, disruptive new businesses, the family businesses who remain the cornerstones of communities, the innovators ploughing their own furrows in staid or declining industries, the recession-busters making a mockery of the doom and gloom, the web wonders, the teenpreneurs, mumpreneurs, olderpreneuers and, er, just about anyone who's running a small business worth shouting about.
We're going to be speaking to our network of entrepreneurs, business leaders and advisors, to investors, to business organisations, networking clubs, and PRs. Heck, we'll be walking straight in off the street, and phoning, emailing and downright stalking just about every business we love.
Entries will be subjected to rigorous scrutiny by our panel of judges which includes Dragons' Den star Deborah Meaden, Coffee Republic founder Sahar Hashemi and Pimlico Plumbers' Charlie Mullins.
Winners will be featured on the Smarta website as an example and inspiration for aspiring entrepreneurs, and be invited to an exclusive event in London where they will be able to network with the Smarta 100 judges and other Smarta backers.
