Business Excellence Awards

Organised by Cambridge News and Cambridge Business magazine, the awards have been running for 20 years to celebrate businesses and individuals that stood out over the past year in the business community. Categories include Employer of the Year, Independent Retailer of the Year, Business Innovation and the TWI Award for Technology Engineering in International Markets.

Stewart was one of four finalists in the Business Person of the Year category. He was nominated based on his success in growing ideaSpace into a hub for early stage innovation in Cambridge, with over 110 individual members from 70 early stage ventures. Two new sites are planned to be opened over the course of the next year.

The awards ceremony, held last week in the Great Hall at King's College, was hosted by the BBC's World Affairs Editor, John Simpson.
