KEiBA is sponsored by the following companies and organisations :
EMC comprises a board-level team of 20 individuals with commercial experience across a wide range of sectors and disciplines.
We are typically engaged by business owners to take responsibility for one-off projects or to fulfil management roles where there is no in-house resource or need for a full-time, permanent position. We mainly work with ambitious growing businesses and, since 1989, have helped many owner/directors to plan and execute a successful exit, creating a number of millionaires en route.
In contrast with the professionally nervous managers in big businesses sitting on cash, our risk takers are the people with the drive and vision to return the UK economy to health. Whilst the driven entrepreneur never goes into business to win Awards, it is essential that their individual and collective efforts are properly recognised.
Brachers has been advising Kent rural businesses for 115 years and is proud to co-sponsor this award with Hadlow College. We are delighted to use this opportunity to highlight those successful Kent land based businesses who have found innovative ways to overcome the 21st century challenges - from climate change to CAP reform, from ever-increasing red-tape to the recession itself.

Kent is a unique county with an extraordinary profile of businesses and with a rich tradition of entrepreneurs, the best of which will finally be acknowledged in these awards.

We champion the enthusiasm and creativity of Kent’s enterprising young people. We are absolutely thrilled to sponsor the Young Entrepreneur Award.
Celebrating young entrepreneurs inspires others to believe “the Fourth Option – being an entrepreneur” can be a great career choice.
Young business people deserve to be seen as the stars they really are! Every day I am inspired by the young people I meet who are interested in business. The stories they tell of how they started and what they have achieved deserves greater recognition. As a charity, we can only offer to help young people because of the support we receive from others. This is an exciting opportunity to acknowledge what is being achieved by Kent for Kent in Kent. Congratulations to every young person who is supporting Kent's economic development.
