UK Trade is offering its Springboard Business Innovation Award winner a free trip for two executives to London, $15,000 in legal and accountancy services, $1,500 for company registration, and five hotel nights and meals.
The competition is open only to U.S. businesses in Arizona, Nevada, Utah and California.
There are three entry categories:
- The United Kingdom is looking for entries in technology, services and social impact business sectors with at least a fledgling presence in the United Kingdom.
- The Springboard award will be presented to a U.S. business demonstrating true innovation and a readiness to expand their global presence. The purpose is getting western U.S. businesses to look across the pond rather than the Pacific Rim.
- Best of British award is open to UK-based companies exporting to the four states.
- Entries are due March 18, with winners announced April 27.
