The BEST Growth Hub – powering the NOVO Awards

Henry Ford once said, “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” He was talking about the power of collaboration. 

Collaboration.  It’s all about creating purposeful connections, both internally and externally.  Working together to achieve goals or solve problems.  Sharing varied skill sets, strengths, and perspectives.

The BEST Growth Hub is the power behind the NOVO Awards – a truly collaborative project. 

The BEST Growth Hub is the front line of business support for all businesses across the county of Essex.  If your business needs advice on planning, growing, solving or adapting, the BEST Growth Hub can help.  We know how to succeed by collaborating, and we want to share that success with Essex’s business leaders by recognising up to 50 Essex SMEs with a NOVO Award.  

The NOVO Awards reward business innovation and will create a legacy that helps shape the face of enterprise and innovation across the county of Essex.  In particular, we want to recognise businesses that have adapted and pivoted in unprecedented circumstances such as the Global Pandemic and EU-Transition.

A NOVO Award will be granted to any Essex business (or sole trader) that scores sufficient marks in the judging process, in demonstrating their innovation.  We aim to award approximately 50 NOVO Awards and 6-8 special ‘gold’ NOVO Awards, for those that have the extra edge.   

You can enter your Essex business, free of charge, to win a NOVO Award on the ENTER page BEFORE 1 JULY 2021.
