Amiqus, the Edinburgh-based company which makes civil justice more accessible has been selected as the best start-up in the Scotland and Northern Ireland region, in the 2017 Barclays Entrepreneurs Awards.
The company now goes forward as entrants in the UK prize, which will be announced in October.
The awards recognise Barclays most innovative businesses and entrepreneurs. The winners are voted for by Barclays staff and a panel of regional and national judges from the UK’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Amiqus’ nomination will now be reviewed by a panel of national judges selecting the overall national winner in the startup category, to be announced at a ceremony in London on 11th October 2017.
Graham Cambridge, Barclay’s Business Manager for High Growth & Entrepreneurs said: “Barclays are proud to support entrepreneurs like Callum Murray and we are pleased to announce that he has been selected by our judging panel as the Startup Entrepreneur for Scotland & Northern Ireland.
“Callum has proven himself to be a true entrepreneur, learning quickly and adapting to his environment across a number of industries. The Amiqus team are going from strength to strength, scaling rapidly with some exciting opportunities ahead. Barclays is passionate about helping businesses like Amiqus.
“We launched a High Growth relationship team to specifically address the gap in Scotland’s scale-ups, supporting entrepreneurs across their journey, from startup to IPO.”
The Barclays award is part of a year of growth and success for Amiqus which recently appointed former Standard Life Chairman Sir Sandy Crombie as Chairman, and which won the Pitch Of The Day and Audience Choice awards at EIE earlier this year.
