Rewise Learning Ltd, the parent company of LearnThruMusic joined London restaurant group Pied à Terre and Masabi – the software developer that closed a deal with trainline.com in May – as winners of the Digital Entrepreneur awards, hailed as the only national stage in the UK dedicated to recognising online business excellence.
Rewise Learning and eighteen other digital businesses in the UK had their entrepreneurial talents rewarded at a glittering awards ceremony held in Manchester on Wednesday, 1 December.
Now in their second year, the Digital Entrepreneur of the Year awards are aimed at discovering and rewarding the best businesses on the web and were expanded this year to accommodate a phenomenal number of applications from high-calibre companies. The winners – in categories including Design & Technology, Sustaining Society, Digital Business and E-services, beat off stiff competition from hundreds of web-based businesses who made up an outstanding shortlist of firms that battled it out for the British internet’s biggest awards.
The firm, that develops and provides innovative Educational training resources and services via its website www.learnthrumusic.co.uk, received the Education Entrepreneur of the Year award.
The winners of all nineteen awards were announced at a glittering awards bash at the Palace Hotel in Manchester where after-dinner speaker James Timpson, managing director of key cutting and shoe repair empire, Timpson, offered advice to budding digital entrepreneurs in the audience on how to take a company from good to great with an “upside down” management structure.
Lawrence Jones, managing director of UKFast, the headline sponsor of this year’s awards and one of Europe’s fastest-growing technical companies, said: “It’s been a privilege to be involved in an event that recognises the innovators and entrepreneurs that are changing the face of the net as we know it. We’ve received a record number of entries this year from some pioneering businesses and have been truly inspired by many of them.”
