Published: 1 March 2023

The finalists have been announced for this year’s Midlothian & East Lothian Business Awards, following review by judges who made the selection from a large number of entries for the 2023 ceremony, run annually by Midlothian & East Lothian Chamber of Commerce.

Midlothian Science Zone is delighted to see such an excellent representation of the innovative science talent from 'in the zone' in this shortlist - Carcinotech, Cytomos, Beebytes and Skyrora.

We look forward to celebrating with all finalists and guests at the Awards Ceremony & Dinner on 29th March at The Brunton Musselburgh. The evening will recognise the exceptional accomplishments of organisations across East Lothian and Midlothian, and will be an excellent opportunity to connect and network with other businesses.

“The Midlothian & East Lothian Business Awards holds a unique place at the heart of the business community in East Lothian and Midlothian. SSE Renewables are pleased to lend our support to the awards and all of the brilliant work being carried out by businesses, from all sectors, and of all sizes, across the regions.

"We are currently proposing to build Berwick Bank Wind Farm, the largest offshore Wind Farm currently in development in the UK with a proposed connection in East Lothian. We are keen to work alongside the Midlothian & East Lothian Chamber of Commerce to maximise local opportunities where possible should the Project be granted consent."

Gary Donlin, Stakeholder Engagement Manager at SSE Renewables - the headline sponsor

DYW Edinburgh, Midlothian & East Lothian; Hargreaves Land; Network ROI; Tenet & You; Thomson Cooper and EDF Torness are among the key sponsors of the event.

Chamber Chief Executive, Karen Ritchie, thanked everyone who had entered the awards and said the most hotly contested categories had included Micro Business of the Year, SME of the Year and Best Community Impact.

“Despite some really challenging trading conditions, it’s been incredibly encouraging to see so many positive applications from business across the region – they are doing some great work and we are honoured to be able to highlight that through these awards.”
