What people are saying
Since our involvement with these awards, we’ve witnessed the drive, optimism and creativity of Welsh entrepreneurs. It’s inspiring to see start-ups from previous award years not only flourish, but also surpass the aspirations they originally set for themselves. As a home-grown business ourselves, we’re passionate about encouraging growth in the Welsh economy through the development of a supportive entrepreneurship ecosystem. These awards are at the heart of it: they act as a valuable springboard for Welsh start-ups, by giving them an opportunity to be recognised and connected. For all these reasons, we’re proud to be the Wales Start-up Awards headline sponsor again this year, and cannot wait to meet and see the talent of this year’s entrants.

Starting a new business certainly doesn’t come without its challenges, but awards like Wales Start-Up really make it all worthwhile. Creating a sustainable future for Wales is one of our mains goals at Aber Falls, so it was a great honour to be part of a ceremony that inspires likeminded businesses to work together with a common goal of improving the Welsh economy. Our award was testament to the incredible passion and tenacity that the team at Aber Falls has; it’s been so rewarding for everyone who plays a part in the success of the distillery to take home the Wales Start-Up of the Year Award.
