Jackie Waring, chief executive of Investing Women, which runs the AccelerateHER Awards, said: “We were blown away by the standard of award submissions this year so I would like to acknowledge all those who took part.

“We will be looking to build on last year’s competition where four of the six finalists secured over £2 million worth of growth financing between them since their involvement in the programme.”
