A great start to the year for Sturgeon Ventures with the United Kingdon – Best Practice Operator of the Year (Regulatory Incubation) ACQ5 Country Awards 2020.

“…Since 2006, ACQ AWARDS have been celebrating achievement, innovation and brilliance in their annual awards. Anybody can make that claim, but ACQ really is different. We boast a legitimately independent nomination process, most importantly, our award winners, are chosen by the industry itself.

We rely on reader insight and experience to provide nominations and we relish hearing about new experts and burgeoning markets. Every year, we seek their assistance in recognising industry leaders, eminent individuals, exemplary teams and distinguished businesses, which we believe represent the benchmark of achievement and best practice in a variety of fields – and every year, our readers help as we strive to recognise an ever-widening spectrum of services, markets, industries and organisations that serve our global market place.

Our awards rise above the status of participation certificate and actually represent an endorsement of outstanding work…”
