There are many inspiring companies trading in Dartford, and the Dartford Business Awards are here to recognise, reward and celebrate their achievements in the local business community.

Brought to you by Dartford Borough Council together with several core partners, sponsors and local ambassadors for the Dartford area, there are a number of different awards categories; all free to enter and designed to cater for every size of business, from the smallest to the largest in the borough. 

Entrants and winners can expect to receive a number of business-building benefits, such as promotion through media and networking opportunities.

Matthew McLarty, Innovation Director, Oxford Innovation, said, “We are proud to be part of the Dartford community where we manage The Nucleus Business & Innovation Centre, a vibrant hub for small and medium-sized businesses in the area. We are seeing a growing number of creative, high quality, high-impact small businesses in the community and the awards provide a great way to shout about them. We are happy to be a sponsor.” 

Commenting on last year’s business awards, Andy Davies, Founder & CEO of The Hug Group Ltd, said, “Having been involved in the education sector for many years, I know first-hand the transformative potential of the Dartford Business Awards. It’s great that the awards allow big and small businesses to participate and since winning in 2018, our business has gone from strength to strength.”
