Leicestershire is the perfect place to run a business, according to two of the UK's most successful entrepreneurs.
Building tycoon David Wilson and Dunelm founder Bill Adderley – who between them are worth more than £1 billion – have turned small, fledgling firms into nationally-recognised companies from bases in the county.
These captains of industry may be exceptional, but Leicestershire is full of fantastic, cutting-edge and fast-growing enterprises which aim to reach the same heights.
It is these companies – whether small, medium or large – that the Leicester Mercury Business Awards 2013 wants to celebrate.
Business leaders say scooping a prize at a major event can even be a more effective shot in the arm for the workforce than paying out bonuses.
Organisers of similar-sized awards events have estimated that awards finalists have benefited from a total promotional package worth £100,000. Some winners have even claimed scooping such an award could be worth up to £1 million to a company during its lifetime.
Fourteen sponsors are supporting 12 different categories at the awards, which take place on March 21. All their names appear elsewhere on this page.
See the panel on the right side of this page for category details and how to enter.
Headline sponsors are De Montfort University, Freeth Cartwright and RSM Tenon.
The event is being held in association with Champions (UK).
The Leicester Mercury Business Awards have replaced the annual Leicestershire Business Awards after an agreement between the organisers and the Leicester Mercury.
David Simms, Leicester Mercury publisher, said: "We are honoured and delighted to be running, in conjunction with Champions (UK) plc, such a prestigious event, which recognises the fantastic and world leading businesses in the city and county."
Martin Traynor, chief executive of Leicestershire Chamber of Commerce, said: "It is important to recognise success in business, particularly in Leicester and Leicestershire, which has such a strong entrepreneurial culture."
