It’s been a successful week for Colony as we picked up an award for ‘Best Website’ at the inaugural British Small Business Awards, held on Thursday night at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London.

Kate Thornton, founder and editor-in-chief of TBSeen.com hosted the awards and welcomed Ben Lobel, editor of SmallBusiness.co.uk to open the ceremony. The Small Business Awards seek to “recognise the small companies that shape British entrepreneurial success.”

The judges commended Colony for its sophisticated website functionality and design

Judges included Sir Rod Aldridge, founder of Capita, Luke Lang, co-founder of Crowdcube, Julie Meyer, founder of Ariadne Capital, and Ian Cass, managing director of the Forum of Private Business. “The judges commended Colony for its sophisticated website functionality and design, and a user experience boosted by the site’s geo-specific homepage modules.”

Niki Baker, CEO of SmallBusiness.co.uk parent company Vitesse Media says, “Against a challenging economic and political backdrop, all of the winners and those shortlisted for awards have demonstrated tenacity, innovation and a commitment to driving growth. Small businesses form the backbone of the UK economy, and these awards provide an excellent platform to showcase the very best of them.”
