It’s that time of year again when we shine a light on the best small businesses in the borough at the H&F Council Brilliant Business Awards.

We’ve added some exciting new categories, including Best Tech Start-up and Best Creative Start-up, which coincides with our new partnership with Imperial College London - Upstream - to make H&F a leading destination for the biotech, digital and creative industries.

Whether it’s the small tech start-up you pass on the way to work, or the independent coffee shop you cannot live without, small businesses are the backbone of our local economy and our community.

So, vote now for your favourite business in Shepherds Bush, Hammersmith and Fulham, to give them a chance of being up on the stage with a H&F Brill Bizz award.

Check out the photos from the H&F Brill Bizz launch event.

“This is a great way to celebrate our diverse and successful mix of businesses which are the backbone to our thriving local economy,” said Cllr Andrew Jones, H&F Cabinet Member for the Economy and the Arts. “We’re always looking at ways to help our local traders and business owners as we aim to be the best place to do business in Europe.”

The awards form part of the council’s Industrial Strategy with Imperial to make the borough the best place to live, work and play in Europe.”


If you are a business, you can also nominate yourself to be considered for the judges’ prize.

The prestigious H&F Brill Bizz awards not only acknowledge business success and achievement but shortlisted and winning firms also say they help attract new customers and help grow your business.

This is the seventh year of the awards which continue to grow in popularity with the number of entries increasing year after year.
