On the 13th of March, the inaugural Scottish SME Business Awards took place in Glasgow celebrating the breadth of talent within Scottish SMEs. We are absolutely delighted that two WeDO members won Awards, Sara Roberts of Healthy Nibbles won the Best Scottish Innovation Award and Sam Trett of LoCa Beverages – Minus 33 won the Best Marketing Campaign of the Year Award.
Commenting on her win, Sara said:
“We’re delighted to have won the Best Scottish Innovation Award, at the Scottish SME Business Awards. It is fabulous to receive external validation, of what we know is an exciting business. It is a super reward for the hard work and dedication put in by the team.”
“It came as a complete surprise winning the Best Marketing Campaign of the Year Award. We were up against some tough competition, from Eden Mill to Glasgow Taxis, I never imagined we’d be in with a chance of winning – but I am delighted that the time dedicated from the whole team; investors, mentors, our design agency Good, all the way to our interns and part-time supporters has paid off. Winning the award will give us the confidence to move on to bigger and better things.”
Congratulations to you both and we wish you all the very best going forward with your businesses – we look forward to watching your progress … and don’t forget it’s our Awards later in the year!
