2009 Enterprise Nation Home Business Awards are open for entry

Home Business Awards

Now in their third year, the Home Business Awards are the biggest and the best when it comes to recognising the amazing businesses being started and grown from home. And this year, we’ve added yet another category…

Deciding on a winner in these Awards is always a difficult task. So to give as many as possible the chance to be recognised and rewarded,  there are the same categories as in 2008 which are:

  • Home Business of the Year
  • Home Business Couple of the Year
  • Home Office of the Year
  • Young Home Business Owner of the Year (under age of 35)

Along with a new category this year of:

  • The 5 to 9 Home Business (open to anyone holding a day job and building the business at nights and weekends)

Your entry will automatically put you in the running to win the title ‘Home Business of the Year’ but you can also tick a box to apply for any or all of the categories.

It’s free to enter and winners will receive some amazing prizes. They include:

  • Prominent profile on the Enterprise Nation site and in a national newspaper
  • Thousands of pounds worth of prizes in home office supplies and technology from our sponsors including Regus, Staples, Douwe Egberts, HP, Moneypenny, and Access Self Storage
  • A brand review with top creative agency, Jump To, who act for a number of home grown businesses such as New Covent Garden Food, Tyrrells and Bacheldre Mill
  • Free entry to the Enterprise Nation Conference
  • A romantic get-away break for the Home Business Couple of the Year!
