South East Angels wins 2023’s Best New Business at Dynamic awards

South East Angels was announced 2023’s Best New Business at the Dynamic Business Awards.

Launched by Platinum Media Group (the magazine with the largest circulation regional business magazine in the UK) the Dynamic Business Awards celebrate entrepreneurship and women-led businesses. The room was buzzing with over 500 business leaders from across Sussex and Surrey.

The Best New Business category, sponsored by Let’s Do Business Finance, is an award dedicated to recognising a businesswoman with entrepreneurial aptitude, vision and drive that has built a successful business in recent years. These businesses are ‘ones to watch’ and are expected to achieve great things, making a real difference to their sector in the future.

The sponsors of the award, Let’s Do Business Finance, said:

“Raising an impressive amount of investment from her group of angel investors for start-ups in the region, South East Angels has had an incredibly successful start from its founding in 2020. Kristina’s entrepreneurial spirit and passion for her business and sector shone through. Founded in 2020, South East Angels quickly garnered the support and backing of entrepreneurs and investors, and filled the gap for what the local ecosystem for start-ups in Brighton really needed.”

Kristina Pereckaite, Founder and Managing Director of South East Angels said

“We’ve set out on a big mission to really make a change in our local startup ecosystem knowing well that it would be a long and tough journey. So, a moment like this, winning our first business award marks a significant milestone, prompting us to pause and reflect on what we have achieved since forming in late 2020. Our investors are not just members of an angel group, they are all huge contributors to our mission to increase early-stage investment access in the South East Regions and have already invested just shy of £1M in startups”.
