A Warwick business which was only set-up two years ago is looking ahead to the future with confidence after being finalists in two prestigious nationwide awards

Comma Group, which is based at the Hatton Technology Park, mingled with over 1,200 business leaders, government officials and investors from across the UK at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards 2017.

Olympic, World and European champion Sir Mo Farah was the keynote speaker and BBC breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty was the compere at the awards evening at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

Comma Group provides independent and comprehensive advice, consultancy, delivery and support services to ensure their clients’ data and information work in harmony throughout their business in the retail, hospitality, manufacturing and e-commerce sectors.

Comma Group, which was launched by Sam Goss, Leigh Wells, Mike Bonsall and Michael Evans, were finalists in the New Business of the Year category which recognised businesses that had exceeded their initial growth targets and were making a significant difference in their industry.

Co-founder Leigh Wells was shortlisted in the New Entrepreneur of the Year section which celebrates the potential that exists within leaders of the UK’s most promising start-ups.

The business was also shortlisted for the 2017 NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards in the Scale-Up Entrepreneur of the Year award which took place at Edgbaston in Birmingham and was compered by Wynne Evans, the opera singer from the Go Compare adverts.

Sam said to have reached the final stages of two high-profile national business awards in only its second year of business was a major achievement.

“We took our team to both awards nights as a way of saying thank-you for all their hard work over the last 18 months,” he said.

“We were really surprised to have reached the final stages because we were shortlisted among household names.

“The National Business Awards were absolutely fantastic and to be nominated among such illustrious company was a reward in itself and to hear Sir Mo’s speech was brilliant.

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards was another evening which attracted business leaders, mentors and entrepreneurs and there were some truly inspirational stories told by the winners.

“While we were disappointed not to win, we were delighted to reach the final stages and we would like to congratulate all the award winners because there were some excellent businesses present and it shows that with a great idea and hard work, you can be successful.

“We were proud to be nominated and next year, we hope to go one stage further!”
