Winner of the BT Entrepreneur Award

Eclipse Email scooped a top prize for its 'visionary' business and a cheque for £2,000.

The company has been announced as the winner of the Most Visionary Business prize, from BT.

This year, 13 companies were shortlisted for the coveted prize of Most Visionary Company.

The winners were announced at a presentation held in Edinburgh, with an audience of business leaders and chief executives from industry organisations including the Federation of Small Businesses and the Chamber of Commerce.

Less than three months ago, Eclipse Email was selected along with 13 others. The judges were so impressed with the business that it has now been selected as the overall winner of the Most Visionary prize for the year, scooping a further cheque for £2,000 as well as the prestigious title.

Cubic established a solid reputation as the experts in email marketing and built an impressive client base, winning contracts from national and multi-national companies.

The publicity and prestige of winning this award adds to that reputation and will help to further strengthen its portfolio of clients.

In the past four years, BT has invested £178,000 in the innovative entrepreneur scheme and today the organisation announced that it has committed a further £40,000 to support entrepreneurs.

Head of communications for BT Scotland Alan Bonas said: "It is very rewarding to be able to assist entrepreneurs and members of the business community through this initiative. Forward-thinking businesses such as Eclipse Email are helping to create an entrepreneurial and socially inclusive Scotland."
