Celebrating award-winning SMEs from across Hertfordshire

Fri 27th Jul 2018

Hertfordshire is a vibrant, innovative and thriving place to do business. A wide range of business sectors call this county their home: from creative industries to life sciences; from hospitality and leisure to knowledge-based industries. SA Law is really proud to call Hertfordshire home and to be the headline sponsor for this year’s SME Hertfordshire awards.

The 2018 SME Hertfordshire awards recognise some of the best small and medium-sized enterprises from across our county. As part of their entry, all finalists shared their business story: stories that were filled with successes, challenges and opportunities for the future. Each one recognised the need to adapt to suit changing market conditions and to successfully engage with their customers. They are inspiring messages that highlighted the passion of the leaders and teams who are all working hard to be successful.

We congratulate every single finalist for making it to the shortlist, and we are really excited to share the winners:
