We have won a few awards in the last year, it wasn’t until we tallied them up that we realised, we’ve actually done rather well!
This time last year we were a finalist in the Tech Media Invest 100, awarded by The Guardian.
We won: we are the Technovator!Is technology at the heart of your business? – Yes. The UK tech scene is buzzing with innovative creative types – how are you using technology to transform your business? – We’re transforming the world of home improvements, making life easier for tradesmen to find work and homeowners to find good tradesmen. Thus we are the Technovator.
Our CEO, Andy Skipwith, was a regional finalist for Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur-Of-The-Year award. Andy set up RatedPeople.com 6 years ago, after being let down by his builder. Our service now processes over 250,000 jobs every year, with 500,000+ visits to the RatedPeople.com site each month.
We also entered Media Momentum‘s award, sponsored by GP Bullhound, we were in the top 50 finalists.
Just last weekend we were in The Sunday Times’ Tech Track 100, and we were up there in 30th place! We’re awaiting the results of the Bully Awards, awarded by WhiteBull, but we already know that we’re in the top 60. And for the second year running we are a finalist in The Guardian’s Tech Media Invest 100 – watch this space, the results are in soon.
Hopefully there will be more awards to come, the best of RatedPeople.com is yet to come!
