Does your business need a boost?

We are proud to sponsor this year’s Business Boost competition run through CN Group in association with fellow sponsors Bendles Solicitors.

The initiative encourages and supports the growth of local businesses.  Winners are selected on their growth potential and receive a package of business support to help them reach their full potential. 

Six winners will each receive £10,000 of advertising with the CN Group and we are offering a special package of prizes.

Each finalist in the competition will receive copies of our book ’57 Ways to Grow Your Business’, our help sheet ‘What Makes a Successful Business’ and our research booklet ‘Competitiveness – How the Best UK Companies are Winning’.

We will also be awarding a special sponsors prize of free consultancy support to any business the judges feel will particularly benefit.  This consultancy support could include an overall business review, support in developing a corporate and personal vision, advice to increase productivity and profitability, help to conduct a competitor analysis and much more.

There are two categories for applicants:

  • New businesses – up to five years old
  • Established Cumbrian businesses of any age with fewer than 250 employees
