North Tyneside’s Business Factory has won this year’s top prize for ‘promoting entrepreneurial spirit’ in the Enterprising Britain Awards 2015.
The prestigious and high-profile national awards are part of the Government’s drive to increase entrepreneurial activity across the UK and celebrate the wide range of activity across the country that stimulates and supports enterprise.
The Business Factory’s ‘outstanding innovation and ambition’ earned the organisation the award and the team were particularly recognised for their work to promote an entrepreneurial mindset in individuals, as well as for their efforts to encourage social enterprise in business.
Established in 2009, the North Tyneside Business Factory project provides a comprehensive and holistic service to budding business owners and entrepreneurs, encompassing all aspects of enterprise.
It is the second year that the Business Factory has been recognised in the Enterprising Britain Awards – last year it was ‘highly commended’ in the same category.
