Applications for Future 50 are open

Future50, supported by the New Anglia LEP and Growth Hub, is on the hunt for Norfolk and Suffolk’s most innovative and ambitious companies.

The campaign aims to find the region’s ‘ones to watch’ and accelerate their growth through exclusive events, peer-to-peer learning, discussion groups and multimedia exposure through the scheme and Archant media channels.

Future50 is delivered across Norfolk and Suffolk by Archant – with partners Barclays, Birketts, Lovewell Blake, New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership and UEA contributing additional support throughout.

Submissions are open for businesses of all sizes and types from 2nd March to 3rd April, which will then be reviewed by a panel of judges until the final 50 are revealed at the end of April.

The New Anglia LEP and Growth Hub are proud to once again be supporting the campaign, providing key growth advice and support to the nominated businesses.

“The New Anglia Growth Hub has supported the Future 50 initiative for several years,” explains Richard Glinn, Growth Hub manager.

“The objectives of recognising and providing genuine and realistic assistance to growing enterprises in our region is a ‘perfect fit’ with the service that the Growth Hub has been offering since 2014.”

“The business world can be challenging and our clients value the guidance of an experienced ‘critical friend’; someone who can look at a company impartially and put forward ideas and information, which can help a local business evolve, and is exactly what our advisers provide.”

“By their very nature, the Future 50 nominated companies are planning for growth and their forward-thinking owners and directors recognise that they cannot achieve this alone.”

“The New Anglia Growth Hub is ready, willing and able to contribute to that journey.”
