It has been a challenging year so we are super excited to be the Winner of the Excellence in Small Business Award announced virtually by the Swedish Australian Chamber of Commerce on November 25.
Four inspirational companies – newcomers as well as established – won the 2021 Awards, showcasing the successful Sweden–Australia business connection.
The Awards provide a great platform for companies to showcase their business within the Swedish-Australian business community. These awards also offer a great opportunity for companies to be recognised at a state as well as national level for being a business leader in its field, or have specific expertise and of course, these awards offer everyone participating, invaluable promotional opportunities. The Swedish Australian Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1911 and feel very proud of celebrating 110 years of dedication to create, promote, add value and support a sustainable Swedish-Australian business network.
The awards are run on a non-profit basis and promote Swedish related business activities in Australia as well as recognising organisations and individuals that help give Swedish business in Australia a positive profile.
The entries for the 2021 year’s awards according to the jury panel were of very high and equal quality, which made the evaluation process very hard but after careful screening of the different nominations the result within the four different categories was decided and announced as follows.
