Celebrating Sheffield at the Small Business Awards

A brilliant evening was had celebrating the accomplishments of some of Sheffield’s top small businesses at the recent Small Business Awards.

The first event of its kind, ran by The Sheffield Star and hosted at the Virgin Money Lounge, saw 30 firms shortlisted in 10 categories including Technology, Professional Services and Innovation.

The evening was a great opportunity to celebrate the successes of Sheffield (something that, as a city, we simply don’t do enough) get our networking shoes on and, of course, Team MK couldn’t say no to a selfie with Lord Mayor, Magid Magid!

Each winner was asked the question ‘Why Sheffield?’ in a bid to banish the natural modesty which is sometimes seen as holding the city back and, with answers ranging from the strength of the manufacturing industry, to the talent produced by the two universities and the friendliness of the locals, it’s clear that Sheffield really is super!!

Here at MK, we’re proud to be based in Sheffield and believe that small and medium sized businesses are fundamental to the success of the City Region. We were delighted to sponsor the first ever Small Business Awards and would like to extend our congratulations to all of the winners!
