Innovation has been the buzzword of 2016 with the launch of hundreds of exciting new products and services from big businesses around the UK. With the rise of the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, virtual reality, omnichannel retail, challenger banks and Pokemon Go, technology is advancing the way businesses and consumers interact, operate, and live their lives.

To celebrate big business innovation and recognise the individuals and teams behind these exciting new developments, Market Gravity is preparing for its seventh annual Corporate Entrepreneur Awards. The proposition design consultancy is calling for nominees for the awards, from big businesses in sectors such as fintech and banking, retail, utilities, automotive and wider technology. Categories include: New Product or Service, New Business Launch, Innovation Culture, and New Challenger.

The awards ceremony, taking place on Thursday 20th October at Kings Place, 90 York Way, London, will announce and celebrate the winners in each category.

Big businesses and market-leading brands including Tesco, KLM, Virgin Money, Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank Group, RBS and Starbucks have already entered the awards. Corporate entrepreneurs, or intrapreneurs, will be invited to vote online for their favourite entries right up until the awards party itself.

Past winners included Dyson, Castrol, Barclaycard, Pearson and Lego. Robin Scarborough, Partner and Managing Director of Market Gravity, says: “These awards recognise ground-breaking ideas and game-changing products and services delivered by large organisations and, once again, we have been impressed by the level of entries received. The standard of big business innovation and new developments in technology is simply outstanding and it’s really exciting to see New Challengers coming through and stepping up to the mark, in sectors such as fintech, connected homes and cars, and retail. Corporate entrepreneurs, or intrapreneurs, are bringing new concepts and ideas to large organisations, injecting a startup mentality, and introducing agile working methods to design and launch new products and services to allow them to maintain a competitive edge.

“The team at Market Gravity specialises in innovation; creating and launching new propositions and ventures with some of the world’s largest companies. We work alongside some brilliant teams across a range of sectors, helping big companies to create and launch new products and services for commercial growth and it’s always great to get together with these innovators at the awards. We wish all entrants the very best of luck.”

During the evening, around 200 of the UK’s most creative, disruptive and entrepreneurial business leaders will enjoy an informal party offering a great networking opportunity and the chance to learn from other innovation experts.
