Nominate your town as UK Top Town for Business

No primary category set

Our towns have long been central hubs for business, leisure and commerce, but this has never been more apparent than during the pandemic. To celebrate local businesses and the towns that allow entrepreneurial spirit to flourish, Enterprise Nation and Dell Technologies in partnership with Intel are running a competition to find the UK Top Town for Business in each region and an overall Top UK Town.

Share what makes your town a Top Town for Business and be entered into a draw to win a Business Bundle which includes an Intel-based Dell laptop with accessories worth over £3000 and a mentoring session with Emma Jones, Founder of Enterprise Nation.

UK Top Town Judging Criteria

The judging panel will assess your nominated town based on the following:


This includes transport links, quality of wi-fi services, and availability of technology.

Dedicated space

Are there out-of-home workspaces available?

Retail space

Are there premises or spaces available that allow online businesses to test or sell their products in a physical environment? This includes pop-up shops, markets, street food areas and so on.


To what extent are there small business networks and/or organisations in the town?


Does the local council support small business? If so, how?
