This year, Give a Grad a Go is delighted to be one of the headline sponsors of the Scale-Up Awards, a ceremony that celebrates the best scaling companies across the UK, no matter the sector or size.

Our CEO & Founder, Cary Curtis, is also sitting on the judging panel. Along with a cohort of fellow business leaders, he has been evaluating the success of high-growth companies over the past year.

2023 has been a testing year, and entrepreneurs have had to respond to this with smart, robust business planning. Many have still managed to excel.

The ceremony will put a spotlight on those who have helped to create jobs, make industry advancements, and achieve impressive growth in 2023.

The awards have been organised by Business Leader, and some of the categories they’re assessing include: ‘Diversity Champion’, ‘Scale-Up Disruptor Award’, and ‘Sustainable Scale-Up Business Of The Year’.

All year round, we support scaling companies of all shapes and sizes. 

If you’re looking to grow, explore our graduate recruitment solutions. We’ll make your hiring easy, so you can keep scaling effectively.
