Here at The British Small Business Awards, we are pleased to make the first shortlist announcement: the Micro Business of the Year category.

Our Micro Business of the Year will be a company of 2-9 people that has demonstrated strong revenue growth and a product or service of a quality that stands above competitors. The identifying of and capitalising on scale opportunities will also be noted by the judges.

We received a multitude of entrants in this category, and narrowing it down to ten finalists was a difficult job. After careful consideration and a close scrutiny of how each candidate matched up to the criteria, the Micro Business of the Year finalists are revealed as:


Bexy Boo

G&J Lee Recruitment

Handrail Creations

Mill House Cottages

No Brainer

Smart Resourcing Solutions 

Southsea Bathing Hut 



This is a critically important category representing, in terms of business size, the bulk of our readership at The companies shortlisted have all demonstrated impressive revenues and an approach to their sector that sets them apart from their peers.

It’s an exciting time to be a business of this size. With just 2-9 employees, companies are small and agile enough to respond quickly to changes in the market but developed enough to be established and respected in their sector. Companies of this size are well placed for growth and we are confident the candidates in our shortlist are on the road to bigger things, most likely in the near future.

The British Small Business Awards, taking place on October 20th at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London, is the leading celebration of the UK’s small business sector, recognising the nation’s best sole traders, micro businesses and small companies – as well as the services providers and advisers that support them.
