The Blenheim Palace New Business Award is open to any business that started trading after the 1st January 2017, that has traded for at least a year. The WOBAs aim to be inclusive, and encourage new businesses to get involved and spread the word about their success.

The judges will be looking for evidence of:

  • How your start-up was achieved
  • Your growth to date
  • The strength and stability of your business
  • Understanding of the market in which you operate
  • Your vision / strategy for future development
  • Your funding / investment plans

About the sponsor

Blenheim Palace is a hugely diverse business with a duty to preserve its legacy, a responsibility to continually evolve, and a need to sustain the strong connection with the community.
In addition to being a visitor attraction, Blenheim is also a venue for weddings and private or corporate events, a filming location, an estate rich in forestry and farming practices, a producer and supplier of Natural Mineral Water, a landowner with a portfolio of properties, a building and contracting business, and a charitable foundation.
We are fortunate to have such a multi-faceted business as part of a uniquely vibrant community with our neighbours. One where we all live, thrive and prosper, together.
New businesses are vital to sustaining economic prosperity. We are delighted to be sponsoring the WOBA New Business Award to recognise some of the best and most innovative start-ups across West Oxfordshire. Blenheim Palace
