Don’t just take our word for it, hear what the recognition meant to some of our previous winners…

“Ecosse IP was delighted and honoured to win the Elevator Innovation Award 2019 - the exposure that the company received both before and after the event was incredible and helped immensely in getting EIP and our Ambient Lifter technology recognised across the industry.”

Dorothy Burke, Managing Director, Ecosse IP Ltd, winner of 2019 Innovation Award

“Winning an Elevator award was incredible! To have my hard work and success recognised, and at such a fantastic awards ceremony, was a real honour. Entrepreneurship can be a lonely place, with little recognition coming your way - the Elevator awards is a chance to share your achievements and shout about your business!"

Ben Leonard, Beast Gear, winner of 2019 Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year

“Winning the Elevator Award for Spirit of Enterprise meant so much to our Wee company. Starting a business in the cannabis world in Scotland has been far from easy, but Wee are over the moon that Rebecca’s story has resonated so much with people and for her to be recognised for all the hard work and sacrifice getting the business to this point is amazing. In an industry full of cheap fakes and fraudsters, this award gives The Wee Hemp Company a huge amount of credibility and builds trust among our customer base. Winning the award makes us stand out from the rest."

Calum Napier, The Wee Hemp Company, winner of 2019 Spirit of Enterprise

“The Elevator Awards is a fantastic evening, celebrating businesses throughout the north-east. We were honoured to be recognised as a contributor to the success of our vibrant city, taking home the Enterprising Communities award at last year’s ceremony.”

Sarah Webster, Sport Aberdeen, winner of 2019 Enterprising Communities
