We aim to recognise a corporate investor that is committed to nurturing and supporting UK SMEs.

This new award will recognise a corporate investor that has placed venture capital in UK SMEs and in doing so has had a significant impact on their growth story. We want to recognise corporates that offer much more than just venture capital. Leveraging their size to nurture talent and enable innovation, and their infrastructure and network to accelerate commercial growth.

We are not accepting entries for this award, instead we will look at market initiatives and investment activity. In collaboration with our advisory board we will then determine the winner.

2017 Winner to be announced at the gala dinner.
