Katapult has scooped two major accolades at the regional Business Awards, which included being crowned Business Of The Year for 2022. The Derbyshire Business Awards, hosted by the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce, was attended by over 400 business leaders and entrepreneurs from across the county.
The Katapult team started the evening by winning in the ‘Excellence in International Trade’ category - before being crowned the overall Business Of The Year on awards night.
Speaking on the night, Insights Lead at Katapult, Robbie Jones said, “In a city rich with manufacturing firms, our 20-strong creative team was picked for our work in creating theme parks and visitor attractions around the world. 50 million visitors globally experience the work we create, every single year.”
“This isn't just a win for us, but for all those with a creative bone in your body. To borrow a phrase from my colleague Dawn Foote, "we need more disruptors, dreamers, innovators and tinkerers" in the world - to raise smiles, improve lives, care for the world, care for others and, above all, unlock the creative potential in everyone.”
“So to those creative people, whether you draw at the weekends or fix a faulty widget at work with innovative thinking - keep going, I believe in you, you're making a huge difference in the world.”
