The Noir team are extremely honoured to be recognised amongst the hundreds of businesses who entered the 2017 Digital Entrepreneur Awards (DEAs) after recently celebrating our first year in business. Not only have we have been shortlisted as finalist for the Digital Startup of the Year, our CEO Anthony Logan has also been shortlisted as Young Entrepreneur of the Year. We have always made it our mission to go above and beyond for the companies that we partner with; bringing a fresh perspective, creative ideas and extensive knowledge of consumer psychology and digital experiences, so it means a lot to be acknowledged for this.
The DEAs are the only national awards dedicated to championing digital entrepreneurialism and innovation across the UK. This year they are split into North/South regions for the first time. The awards, now in their 13th year, cover categories encompassing every component of today’s online business ecosystem – from enigmatic leadership to forward-thinking development and cutting-edge creative. Categories include Social Media Campaign of the Year, Most Innovative use of Video or Animation and the coveted Digital Entrepreneur of the Year award.
Previous winners of the awards span a range of sectors, from retail giants like Sainsbury’s and Mothercare to more agile digital specialists like our partners, Social Chain.
Lawrence Jones, CEO of headline sponsor UKFast, said: “It’s extraordinary to see the development of digital across every sector. From creative agencies to law firms and the public sector, everyone needs to evolve their offering to stay ahead of the competition. That’s reflected in the sheer number and diversity of entries we’ve received this year.
“The DEAs are an incredible opportunity to celebrate the best in digital talent from up and down the UK. It’s an amazing honour to return as the lead sponsor this year as the awards evolve to encourage involvement from every region in the country.
“This year’s finalists have all shown a clear appreciation of challenges faced in business and how to solve them using digital innovation, meeting the everyday needs of their customers by evolving new solutions and approaches. That’s what the DEAs are all about.”
