Congratulations to Signum Health, Studio Hicks and the Youth Development Agency who have all been shortlisted at the Wales Startup Awards!


Wales Startup Awards 2018


The Wales Startup awards is different to many others in Wales. It gets away from the usual black tie approach to business awards and is held in an informal setting at the award-winning Depot in Cardiff, an entrepreneurial start-up business where street food and craft beer from Welsh enterprise is served to those attending. More importantly, it’s an award ceremony that, is exclusively for start-ups only and focuses on celebrating their success across the economy.
