SFA National Small Business Awards 2012

The eighth SFA National Small Business Awards was officially launched on 15th September, by Awards Patron An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, TD.  The aim of the awards is to celebrate the achievements of small business in Ireland, and to recognise the vital contribution of the small business sector to Irish industry.  The Awards gives companies serious about progressing their business the opportunity to think strategically about their business, have their business-plan reviewed by independent experts, market their business through widespread media coverage and recognise the achievements of their team to date.  An extensive prize package is also available including a €5000 overall winner’s prize.

36 Awards finalists in six categories will be announced in early December, along with 5 emerging new businesses who are established for less than 2 years. The presentation to the Award Winners will take place at an Awards Ceremony in March 2012. 

Applications are now being accepted until 5.30pm on Friday, 28th October and full details and application forms are available by clicking here.
