We're celebrating fast-growth businesses with the Breakthrough 50, an award especially for Britain's fast, innovative and growing businesses. The winners will join an exclusive network of Britain's top entrepreneurs including Paul Lindley of Ella's Kitchen. On top of that, one overall winner will get a place on an international trade mission that will put you in the room with people who can open doors for you around the world.
But applications close at 5pm on Monday 12 May. If you want to be a part of the Breakthrough 50, you have to apply now!
