Get the recognition your business deserves
Since 2007, the European Business Awards has been shining a light on the most innovative businesses on the continent by promoting success, innovation and ethics in the European business community.
The Awards’ aims:
- to draw attention to and recognise our best businesses and what they are doing.
- to enable companies of all sizes and industries to compare themselves to and learn from the very best in Europe.
- to stimulate the debate about the future shape, form and substance of the business community in Europe.
Funding and Finances
In order to fund the running of the competition , the Awards deliver a range of products and services to the business community that generate income and are aligned with the objectives of the Awards. The range of products and services include: sponsorship, research, feedback and benchmarking.
Additionally, companies participating in the Awards are able to make a voluntary contribution towards the administration and running of the programme.
Through these activities the programme aims to be financially self sustaining.
Whether an organisation purchases a product or service, or makes any form of voluntary contribution, this will in no way influence the outcome of the competition.
