We were very pleasantly surprised and excited when we received news that Solar Solve Ltd had been shortlisted in two categories of the North East FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards 2020 event.
One of the categories is International Business of the Year. The Judges are looking for businesses that can demonstrate how working internationally has benefited their business profitability, growth and strategy.
The second category is Family Business of the Year. Championing the big contribution family firms make to business, this category seeks to reward the UK’s top family-run SME with less than 250 employees. Judges are looking for an organisation that can demonstrate how the family business’s nature and values have contributed to success across the business.
The awards event is organised and promoted by the UK’s Federation of Small Businesses. The North East area final will take place in Newcastle and winners of the 12 area finals will attend the National Final celebration, which will take place on 21 May 2020, at Battersea Evolution, London, where the UK winners will be announced.
In the 1990’s and 2000’s Solar Solve won over 20 business awards and decided to stop applying to give other businesses a chance. However after a lapse of more than a decade of giving award applications a miss, Solar Solve’s 3 Board members decided to start the new decade by reviving their award winning efforts. The FSB were the first ones chosen and the company is off to a good start.
