Britain is bursting with high growth businesses that are pushing the UK economy slowly skywards, creating jobs and innovating sectors right across the UK. We believe it's now time that these pioneering businesses, together with the entrepreneurs who lead them were recognised, that’s why we are launching the Santander Breakthrough 50 awards in partnership with Smarta.

As part of the Santander Breakthrough 50 Awards launch, Smarta, the UK’s no1 website for small business advice are hosting a series of events across the UK. We’re bringing together the top entrepreneurs from each region, and asking them to reveal the blueprint to building their high growth businesses.

Whether you’re just starting to scale up or planning how you can take your small business to the next level, this event will be full of tips and advice that can help you grow your business. This event focuses on providing you with a blueprint to building a succesful business, delivered by entrepreneurs who have achieved it. Our speakers have practical advice, which you can take away and start applying to your business straight away.
