We are delighted to have been awarded the ‘Team of the Year’ award at the 2020 Growth Investor Awards, the flagship event that celebrates the standout investment providers who help SMEs to thrive.
This award was open to any team working within the growth investment community to deliver exceptional results. Whether a team was dedicated to business development, customer service, marketing, advisory or something completely different, the judges looked for the team that has gone above and beyond to support their customers and colleagues whilst successfully delivering on their projects over the past 12-months.
Established six years ago, the Growth Investor Awards aim to shine a spotlight on the providers who have an impact beyond investment: creating jobs, boosting economic growth, and supporting innovation. With the growth capital they provide, ambitious businesses are able to scale up and make the UK one of the most dynamic places in the world in which to start a business.
Commenting on winning this award, Ian Warwick, Deepbridge’s Managing Partner:
“During these unprecedented and challenging times, I am delighted that Deepbridge has won this award for our passion and innovation towards the growth investment industry. This award represents the hard work and fortitude shown by our amazing team over the past twelve months, and I am extremely proud of the passionate, expert team we have. As a team, we are raring to go again in 2021.”
Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership, the organiser of the awards commented:
“At the Growth Investor Awards, we’re rightly proud of the crucial work the UK’s early-stage business community undertakes every year to bring new ideas to fruition, grow employment opportunities, and underpin a flourishing economy.”
He adds: “This year’s winners deserve the highest praise for dedicating their expertise to the cultivation and support of the SMEs whose massive potential is a vital light at the end of the Covid and Brexit tunnel.”
Finalists have been chosen by Intelligent Partnership’s research team, guided by an advisory board. The best entries were passed to a second round of judging carried out by at least three people from an independent panel of 34 judges, to provide a diverse mix of qualified perspectives. All of the judges’ scores are collated to determine the winner, with all finalists receiving a personalised feedback and benchmarking report to provide insight about areas for improvement.
