On July 5, at a ceremony in the Dorchester Hotel in London, TyresOnTheDrive was awarded the High Growth Team of the Year Award, sponsored by Barclays, at the UK Business Angels Association Awards.
The UK Business Angels Association (UKBAA) is the national trade association representing angel and early stage investment. The association’s awards, now in their eleventh year, celebrate the achievement and impact of the UK angel investment communities and their role in backing the UK’s most exciting high growth businesses and fastest growing brands.
James Todd, Head of the Family Office Team at Barclays, presented TyresOnTheDrive with the award, and we were thrilled to receive it!
Commenting on the win, the judges said: “The TyresOnTheDrive team have achieved exceptionally strong growth in sales and a clear focus on their customers, reducing the pain for timely access to the right tyres, bringing a clear disruption to the market.”
They went on to say: “The founder has shown strong leadership in building an effective team drawn from a range of tech industries to support their scale-up strategy, using investment to support their expansion across the UK”.
Other winners at the awards included British biotechnology company Oxitec, which won Social Impact Investment of the Year, and Best Investment in Disruptive Tech, which went to carwow.
