The Elite Business Top 100 (EB100) 2024 Award Ceremony took place last night in St. Paul’s, London. The annual event shines a much-needed spotlight on the outstanding Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) found across the United Kingdom.

Established in 2022, the EB100 provides a thorough ranking of the UK's Top 100 SMEs. It’s a showcase for a broad spectrum of industries, including technology, media, finance, healthcare, and more. This year, entrants were judged by a panel of 50 industry specialists, including the likes of Piers Linney of the BBC's Dragon's Den, serial entrepreneur Flavilla Fongang, and Charlie Mullins OBE, Founder of Pimlico Plumbers.

The awards presented a wonderful opportunity to recognise excellent customer service, outstanding performance, diversity, sustainability, innovation, and leadership. The evening also brought together a diverse group of business professionals, entrepreneurs, and executives to rub shoulders, network and share insights.
