Greenwich’s 2023 Business Awards crowned 13 local businesses for their contributions to the community this year – and we have the full list of the lucky winners.

The awards drew over 350 attendees to The O2 on November 10 and this year saw a record number of nominations with 320 organisations entering the competition.

The announcements of the winners for the 12 categories were made as well as Business of the Year -which went to Thamesmead-based Helix 3D.

The family business specialises in set design and construction for film, TV and commercials.

A panel of judges, comprising local and business figures, chose the winners for nine categories and the Business of the Year.

Among the judges were Head Judge Cllr Mariam Lolavar, and Michael Bullion, CEO at Tribe Urban Entertainment.

The decisions for three categories - Best Food and Drinks Venue, High Street Business and Market or Mobile Trader—were given to the public and more than 8,000 votes were cast.

The finalists enjoyed a champagne reception, courtesy of GLL-Better, and had lunch with scenic views of the River Thames.

The event was hosted by Jason Bradbury, a tech entrepreneur and TV presenter known for shows like The Gadget Show.

Businesses also raised funds for the Mayor's charities, the Javan Coker Foundation, and the Stroke Association through the Mayor's Charity Raffle, sponsored by Lovell.

Councillor Anthony Okereke, Leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, said: “Huge congratulations to our winners and finalists, who have achieved amazing things over the last year. We want to thank local businesses for their important contributions to Royal Greenwich.

“From enlivening our town centres to providing jobs and helping us to create an inclusive local economy, they are the backbone of our community.

“The annual Business Awards are an opportunity to recognise the best businesses in the borough and highlight Royal Greenwich as a fantastic place to do business, with strong industry networks connecting businesses and traders, great transport links and vibrant, historic town centres.

“We encourage more businesses to establish and grow their business here in the future.” 

Councillor Mariam Lolavar, Cabinet Member for Inclusive Economy, Business and Skills and Head Judge, said: “It was wonderful to celebrate our incredible winners and finalists at the ceremony on Friday.

“With a record number of entries, across all categories this year, it was no easy feat to be crowned winner.

“This year’s winners reflect the exciting diversity of industries in the borough – from design and manufacturing companies to training providers, and from community cafes to world-class museums and attractions.

“We are so proud of our business community and the Business Awards are our chance to shine a light on their hard work and remarkable achievements as well as a timely reminder to support our businesses by shopping locally.”
