Resus Rangers named Education & Training StartUp of the Year in the South East!

Exciting news! South East-based startup business, Resus Rangers has been named as the Education & Training StartUp of the Year at the 2024 South East StartUp awards.


The UK StartUp Awards is run by the founders of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards (an established programme nationally receiving thousands of applications annually and the UK Fast Growth 50 Index (which recognises the fastest growing firms across the nations and regions of the UK).


The UK StartUp Awards recognises the achievements of those amazing individuals who have had a great idea, spotted the opportunity and taken the risks to launch a new product or service. There are over 30 categories that can be entered ranging from consumer products to mobile technologies to social enterprises, demonstrating the depth and variety of entrepreneurial talent in the UK.


Supported nationally by Starling Bank, Airwallex, Chime Agency, Development Bank of Wales, EvaBuild, ForrestBrown, GiftRound, GS1 UK, Join Talent, OVHcloud, Project Simply, ScoreApp, SFC Capital and Welsh Government, Harriet Rees, CIO at Starling Bank says: 


“Turning an idea into a successful business takes a lot of courage and dedication. Congratulations to Resus Rangers on winning their category in the South East and making it to this year’s UK national final. Start-ups need certainty to plan ahead. It’s great to see so many thrive, especially in these challenging economic times.”


Nearly 90,000 new businesses were created in the South East in 2023 and according to Professor Dylan Jones-Evans OBE, creator of the awards, this demonstrates the growing importance of entrepreneurs to the regional economy. He is also excited that the awards are, yet again, recognising the best new firms from Oxford to Southampton to Kent and celebrating the amazing entrepreneurial talent from every corner of the region. 

He said: “Start-ups are the life of any economy and that is especially true in the South East where new businesses are contributing to job creation, innovation, and prosperity across the whole of this entrepreneurial region. It’s been an honour and a pleasure to read the stories of those founders who have spotted the opportunity and taken the risk to launch their own venture. All of the winners in the South East have demonstrated that they deserve to win their categories and I’m looking forward to having the ‘best of the best’ from the region competing at the UK final later this year.”

As a regional winner in their category, Resus Rangers will now progress to the UK Startup Awards UK national final being held at Ideas Fest, in Tring, Hertfordshire on September 12th, dubbed ‘the Glastonbury for Entrepreneurs’.
