The Hustle Awards: limited tickets available

There’s still time to grab a ticket to the much-anticipated Hustle Awards, which will be taking place next week (18th July) at The Steel Yard, honouring the achievements of startups, scaleups, and entrepreneurs from various sectors.

The Hustle Awards have become a key fixture in the startup ecosystem, recognising the hard work, innovation, and resilience of young companies and their founders. This year’s ceremony promises to be a significant gathering of industry leaders, investors, and budding entrepreneurs.

Let’s take a deeper look at what’s to come this year…

  • The final category, Reader’s Choice Award, has been voted for by you, the readers of Startups Magazine. The entire shortlist and winners were up to the judges, but this award is all down to the readers.


If we do say so ourselves, the Hustle Awards is one of the most important and fun nights of the startup calendar. With companies travelling to London from across the world, we bring together a diverse set of attendees, including startups and founders, investors, and key players within the tech industry, making the night perfect for expanding your network.

The night will be kicking off with welcome speeches by Anna Wood, the Editor of Startups Magazine, and sponsor Dell. Following up the welcome speeches comes a comedy set from the fabulous Doc Brown, who is sure to tickle a rib or two! He is also hosting the evening, so it is due to be a hilarious time.

After the ceremony comes even more free-flowing drinks and the evening entertainment: MT Collective. MT Collective are fresh, hip, and tonnes of fun – they handpick the best musicians to deliver an exceptional night of dancefloor packing live music.

All that dancing will get you hungry, so the food this time is provided by KERB. Gully and BBQ Dept will be serving up their delicious food.

Gully will be serving up:

Naan wrap or rice box with one of the following fillings:

  • Chicken Tikka (GF, H)
  • Paneer Masala (V, GF)

BBQ Dept will have the options, all served in a toasted brioche with slaw:
