Cheshire East Council is backing the annual South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards as part of a broader business support programme.
The Council is sponsoring the best start-up business of the year category, for firms in their first two years of trading.
Councillor Michael Jones, Leader of Cheshire East Council, said: “We are proud to sponsor these awards and especially to do our bit in helping people who have recently started their own businesses to get the recognition they deserve.
“We recognise the importance of promoting and supporting local business and enterprise. The contribution of new and pioneering businesses to the wealth and diversity of trade across Cheshire is invaluable. It is these success stories that attract and encourage existing businesses to keep striving for greater success.”
Cheshire East Council is one of a prestigious line up of sponsors, who also include Bentley Motors, Manchester Metropolitan University and RBS Corporate Banking.
The deadline for entries is November 7, 2014 and the awards will be presented on November 28 at a black tie dinner at Crewe Hall Hotel.
