Celebrating with Cambridgeshire's finest


Last week, one of our long-standing clients, Green Custard, scooped both Business of the Year (under 50 employees) and Overall Winner at the SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards - and we were there to celebrate with them!

Congratulations, team GC!

Cambridge-based software consultancy, Green Custard, was awarded Business of the Year (under 50 employees) for the work they have done in partnership with local startups and complementary organisations to drive innovation and deliver bold new solutions across the county.

This win truly made their night, but at the end of the evening, they were honoured with the 2019 Overall Winner Award too! The team were clearly very surprised to have been chosen over 20 categories and almost 100 other deserving finalists, but were delighted to take home the gong with a judge commenting “a very interesting and exciting business, a clear winner for us.”

This is a fantastic achievement and perfect timing as the team is currently celebrating their 10th year in business too.

So why were we there?

That’s a question many of our business friends asked on the night (congrats Joe Glover, Krishna Solanki and Sue Keogh!) when they saw us on the stage. Well, the GC team wanted to thank us for the work we’ve done with them and were kind enough to invite us along to celebrate as part of the team - and that we sure did!

Green Custard became one of our first clients when we hatched The Crane Event back in 2016, and we’ve been working with them ever since. We’ve supported them on many projects over the past 3 years including the current series of IoT events they are hosting with Amazon Web Services - a partnership which was highlighted in the winning entry.

The Green Custard Directors, James Green and Jonathan Custance, have not only been great clients but fantastic business mentors to us too. I (quite literally) jumped for joy when it was announced they’d won” - Jemma Crane, The Crane Event

We wanted to invite Jemma to join us for the ceremony as a thank you for her hard work which contributed to us winning these awards, and as a celebration of the exciting times ahead with all the events we have on the horizon” - Jonathan Custance, Director, Green Custard

So congratulations, team GC! Both titles were thoroughly deserved and although you were very humble as the winners were announced, we knew those awards had your name on them.

Good luck for the National Awards which are being held this December at Wembley!
