Accolade for Sheffield businesses at 2021 British Chambers Business Awards

4th November 2021

Three Sheffield Chamber members have been crowned as winners in the Yorkshire & Humber heats of the Chamber Business Awards 2021.

Now in their 18th year, the Awards are a highlight of the business calendar, and they pay tribute to the key role local businesses play in driving the UK economy.

MyGeo, the unique social retail app that enables businesses to connect with customers using location-based tech have been crowned The Game Changer award winner. My Geo were awarded this due to their game changing potential to bring economic recovery and revival to our high streets.

Iceotope Technologies Limited, a technology business supplying a patented cooling platform for the IT industry have won The Global Player award. Through all 2020’s uncertainties, Iceotope has thrived and come through the unstable climate.

The Problem Solver award has been won by City Taxis who adapted during the pandemic to provide our communities with continuity, accessibility and some sort of normal. City launched their CityGrab delivery platform, which has established itself as a lifeline for over 300 local independent businesses in the region.

Congratulations to all winners who will now go forward to the national finals, which take place online on the 9th December 2021.

Ruby McGregor-Smith, President of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said: “Every single business in the UK deserves recognition for surviving the last 18 months of the pandemic.

“They have endured some of the toughest economic conditions that the UK has ever experienced, and it is a testament to their drive, determination and innovation that they have made it through.

“The Chamber Business Awards are therefore the perfect opportunity for us to celebrate our business community’s achievements and to shine a light on the work of UK businesses that have produced outstanding results in such trying times.

“Our judging teams across the country are consistently impressed by the number of high calibre entrants in the awards, and this year’s competitors should rightly inspire others to follow in their footsteps.”

Alexis Krachai, Interim Executive Director of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry said: “We are extremely proud that Sheffield members have won three of the five categories for which entries were submitted."

"These innovative companies call Sheffield their home and are part of what helps us towards making our city the best place in the UK to start, grow and run a successful and sustainable business.”
