The Yorkshire Business Masters 2021 are back and ready to celebrate the region’s success stories of the past year.

After being forced to go virtual for 2020, this year’s awards look to showcase the achievements of Yorkshire companies, and this year includes a number of new categories.

Entries are currently open until 16 July, simply download the entry form here.

This year’s two new awards are the Disruptor and Sustainability awards. These will acknowledge achievements in two areas that have become much more important – how businesses are harnessing the power of tech to change their company and industry, and how they are addressing environmental issues to be a more considerate company.

The Business Masters winners will be revealed at TheBusinessDesk.com’s annual Yorkshire dinner on Thursday, October 14, at the Queens Hotel, Leeds.

  • Start-up
