Nachural awards

Nachural awards recognise excellence across the board

An audience of more than 450 attended the second Nachural Entrepreneurship Awards. The awards were launched by Ninder Johal of Nachural to encourage networking between the East and West Midlands and recognise excellence from early stage businesses to those that had matured, as well as companies whose modus operandi is to disrupt the marketplace. Winners included Talash Hotels, First Enterprise and Matt Jones of Oxbridge Home Learning. Event sponsors were Kuflink, Cobra Beer and East End Foods. The charity was newly-formed BEC UK. Host was Tommy Sandhu.
