Put your brand ‘on the map’ by becoming an award sponsor! Female entrepreneurship is on the rise and is one of the back backbones of the British economy. In 2017 the Independent claimed that Women hold the key to UK economy unlocking extra £10.1bn? It's incredible how much of an impact businesswomen are having on the economy these days and it is essential they get the support and recognition that they deserve, which is the first and best reason to sponsor an award.

 

However, most businesses need sponsorship to make economic sense too and so let's take a look at how sponsoring an award is an investment with a clear return. A savvy businessperson will understand the immense value that comes from being associated with an award and how this position elevates them above their competitors making their business a familiar name within the community. On average sponsors of business awards achieve over 300% ROI along with significant media value and brand benefits.
