The British Business Boost was launched by Siemens Enterprise Communications in May to provide practical support and inspiration for the country’s 4.8 million smaller firms.

Chairman of the judging panel Leon Mangan, indirect channel sales director, Siemens Enterprise Communications, said; “Britain is well known for its entrepreneurial flair, and the quality of the competition entrants has proven that spirit is alive and well. We have a fascinating set of finalists, and it was extremely difficult to select the ten finalists. Choosing the winner will be even harder, but it is great to see the British Business Boost is inspiring our small firms.”

London, Monday September 20 - The British Business Boost, a unique £50,000 prize competition set up by Siemens Enterprise Communications to inspire growth-focused small firms, has announced its short list of ten finalists.

The short list consisted of a wide selection of companies, ranging from a 3D digital modeling firm to a Pinewood Studios-based stunt company, each of which has demonstrated significant business innovation and growth.

The competition in the British Business Boost award 2010 was tough with the panel of four judges offering a pedigree of success and innovation in a wide variety of business backgrounds.  Whilst we were not the outright winners of the competition we did very well.  Having reached the final ten, nationwide, we were given Finest British Business Boost certification in recognition of “innovation, vision and achievement in a small / medium enterprise.”

During the judging session on Tuesday, September 21st, the ten companies’ entries were scrutinised by an expert panel including entrepreneurs Tristram Mayhew of forest adventure company GoApe!, Julie Meyer of Ariadne Capital, as well as restaurant entrepreneur Sarah Willingham and Gerard Burke of growth firm Your Business Your Future.
