Are you a small business with a big success story to tell? If so, you could be in line for a stunning £30,000 top prize thanks to a new national competition.

SMEs from across the South East Midlands are invited to enter the GREAT Faces of British Business competition. Here at Velocity we know there are so many examples of local businesses who have a real story to tell and here’s your chance to shout about it on the national stage.

The competition has been launched by the Government’s Business is GREAT campaign and BT Business to find the country’s most innovative and exciting small and medium sized businesses.

Last year, Government’s Small Business:GREAT Ambition paper outlined its commitment to make it easier for small businesses to start and grow.  The success of small businesses is central to the Government’s long term economic plan.  Having motivational case studies on the GREAT business website illustrates to peer businesses potential opportunities.

Businesses entering the GREAT Faces of British Business will have the chance of being crowned their regional champion, and the winners shortlisted for the national competition.
The overall winner will win an exclusive prize package worth over £30,000.
