Small Firms Association Awards 2016 launched

14th September 2015

The Small Firms Association (SFA) Awards 2016 were unveiled last week by the Taoiseach, Enda Kenny.

The SFA Awards are designed to recognise the achievements of small business in all four corners of Ireland and to recognise the integral role the small business sector plays in underpinning the national economy.

AJ Noonan, chairman and chair of the awards’ judging panel, SFA, said: “The SFA has a vision of an Ireland, that has the most vibrant small business community in the world – supporting entrepreneurship, valuing small business and rewarding risk takers.

“The SFA National Small Business Awards are a celebration of the achievements of the 200,000 small firms in Ireland, who collectively employ 860,000 people, half the private sector workforce, and aim to promote excellence, achievement and innovation amongst small businesses in all sectors and parts of the country.”

The awards are free to enter and the prize package for every finalist includes an exhibition stand at the SFA National Small Business Showcase in Dublin Castle in February 2016.

It also entitles finalists to a strategic management masterclass weekend, a voucher for a Skillnets ManagementWorks management team/CEO course, as well as broad-ranging national and local media coverage, valued at €50,000.

Each category winner will be presented with a trophy and free membership of the Small Firms Association. The Overall Winner will be awarded a bursary of €5,000 to present to a charity of their choice (funded by the 2013 Overall Winner, Megazyme International Ireland).
