Are you part of Barking and Dagenham’s next big business?

If so, your company could be crowned best new business at the Barking and Dagenham Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.

It is one of a range of categories that companies can enter this year, and is open to any business which has registered in the borough within the past three years.

Entrants must be able to show how their business has progressed in line with their business plan, and how employees have a clear understanding of their products, competitors and place in the market.

Last year’s best new business category was won by Gains Accountants Ltd, based in Chadwell Heath.
