Plan Bee Picks Up Prestigious PwC Prize!

We have scooped a prestigious Scottish Private Business award from global commercial enterprise giants PwC and have been voted by the jury committee to go forward to the UK final in September 2014 in London.

“We’re delighted to pick up this accolade from one of the world’s commercial business powerhouses. If PwC don’t know about private business then who does? It would be amazing to take the philosophy of our fledgling Scottish sustainability company to London, particularly in this year of Homecoming, the Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup.”

Now in their fourth year, the Private Business Awards are sponsored by PwC, in association with HSBC Private Bank and Ford Sinclair Events and are presented to the UK’s most successful private companies, entrepreneurs and management teams.

The awards help to highlight and reward strong, successful growth businesses, the lifeblood of the economy, the sector of jobs and the driver of growth. The awards recognise success and achievement within the vast number of private businesses in the UK.

Plan Bee follow in the auspicious footsteps of Brewdog and Spex.

“This has been an extremely challenging, yet rewarding year for Plan Bee Ltd. Last Friday (6th June) also marked the completion of our crowdfunding project and we smashed through the funding ceiling. Successfully achieving this goal is an indicator of the confidence our investors have in the business. We will use this funding to invest in a hundred more hives and employ disadvantaged young people to give them a career they can build on.”
