Since their inception in 2007 the European Business Awards have become one of the most engaging and best recognised business awards programmes in the world. At RSM we have been a proud sponsor and supporter over those six years and we are now excited to announce that we will be the event’s Lead Sponsor from 2013/14 onwards. This will complement our existing sponsorship of the RSM Entrepreneur of the Year category, as we remain committed to promoting entrepreneurship across Europe and the wider world.
On the last completed programme over 15,000 businesses, employing in excess of 2.7 million people and generating a combined turnover of over one trillion Euros, engaged with the European Business Awards in a quest to gain international recognition for their achievements, ethical policies and innovation. We have watched as a huge number of businesses, across a wide range of industries, from start-ups to established multinationals, have come together at awards events and competed for the eleven much coveted category titles.
After several years of economic difficulties in Europe, it is more important than ever that we recognise and encourage success and innovation. Recession can often nurture creativity and development and in the current climate Europe continues to be the birthplace of some of the most exciting and innovative businesses in the world. RSM is proud to be associated with these companies and with the EBA; in today’s environment it is a great opportunity to focus on the positive and promote success, business ethics and ingenuity.
