UKBF has proudly crowned Northampton-based e-learning creative agency, Purple Media Ltd, the Small Business Of The Year at the Northamptonshire Business Awards on Thursday, 11 November.

The prestigious award that is sponsored by UKBF, the UK’s most authoritative resource for ambitious small and micro-businesses, is one of ten categories at the Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce’s annual business celebrations. The Small Business of The Year award is presented to the company that has achieved consistent growth, backed by a strong financial performance, and demonstrates a clear understanding of the markets it operates in.

Richard Osborne, founder and CEO of UKBF, said: “All of the finalists for the Small Business of The Year have shown incredible ambition and resilience in what has been an extraordinarily tough eighteen months for small businesses up and down the country. Covid-19 dealt small business owners the most challenging of circumstances, and yet so many rose to those challenges and grew bigger and better than before”.

“Exceptional in different ways, the Small Business Of The Year 2021 really was tough category to judge. In the end, Purple Media stood out to UKBF for its exceptional drive, ambition and tenacity. The future looks really bright for Purple Media and UKBF wishes it every success!” continued Richard Osborne.
