Celebrating The Family Business

5th December 2019

We are delighted to announce that Cantium is to be a sponsor of the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce Business Awards 2020. These annual awards celebrate the strength and depth of the businesses operating in Kent and will culminate in a glittering awards ceremony at Westenhanger Castle in Hythe on the 19th March 2020.

We are keen to work with businesses in Kent and beyond; therefore supporting the Kent Invicta Chamber is an opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to the local economy.

We are particularly pleased to be sponsoring the ‘Family Business of the Year’ category.

Family businesses are the cornerstone of the British economy, employing over 12 million people and accounting for over £520 Billion gross value-added contribution to the UK GDP. Surprisingly, 88% of UK businesses are family-owned, and they contribute over 21% of the government’s total annual revenue.

Speaking about the sponsorship, Cantium’s Chief Executive Mark Scott said: “Family businesses are entrepreneurial by nature, and as such, they are genuine wealth creators; not only contributing to the national economy but also playing a pivotal role in local communities. We are happy to be sponsoring a category that celebrates the enormous value that family businesses add to the Kent economy and the role they fulfil in the community”.

We encourage all businesses to enter the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. We are not only proud sponsors, we are proud supporters of all businesses in Kent, and we think you should be too.
