The Wales Start-Up Awards; A springboard for National Expansion

New firms are the lifeblood of any growing economy as they create wealth, develop innovation and, most importantly, generate jobs in local communities.

With research showing that new businesses create the majority of employment in any economy, they are making a real difference every day in improving prosperity across Wales.

The Wales Start-Up Awards were established in 2016 to recognise the achievements of those amazing individuals who have had a great idea, spotted the opportunity and taken the risks to launch a new product or service. Such entrepreneurs and their new ventures are the unsung heroes of the business community and we feel it is important, now more than ever, to recognise their talents, creativity and sheer hard work.
