Scale-Up Awards 2022: on the night

After helping to judge entries for the Scale-Up Awards 2022 over the summer, we were excited to meet the finalists at the awards night this month.

Run by Business Leader, the Scale-Up Awards are aimed at fast-growing, innovative and ambitious UK businesses. Senior members of BKL Advance – our virtual CFO team – judged entries across five categories.

As sponsors of the Technology Scale-Up Of The Year award, we had the honour of presenting it to the winners: Xledger, who enable digital transformation with their comprehensive cloud finance software.

Simon Eaton, our Business Services Partner specialising in tech clients, presented Xledger’s team with the award. In this video, you can see the award presentation and hear a few words from Simon about why supporting growing businesses and sponsoring the Technology Scale-Up of the Year Award was so important to us.

We’d like to thank all of the Scale-Up Awards entrants for sharing their accomplishments and to wish next year’s aspiring entrants good luck. Keep thinking big!

BKL Advance’s virtual CFO service can help you take your business to a new level of excellence. Our flexibility means that you can call on the support you need, when you need it, from trusted second opinions and strategic guidance to efficient operational management.
