REALsafe wins national business award

BDN readers have helped motorcycle safety app-maker REALsafe Technologies Ltd of Durham to win the national Grand Prix prize in the GREAT Faces of British Business competition. The Business is GREAT Britain campaign launched the competition in November 2014, in association with BT Business, to find the most innovative and exciting UK businesses. It drew to a close on 3 March with an awards ceremony at the BT Tower in London. 

The company received its award from Business Minister Matthew Hancock.

Two weeks ago the BDN website carried the story of how REALsafe had won the North-East regional heat of the competition, and urged readers to vote for the company to help it win the main prize.

REALSafe MD Zoe Farrington said: “We’re absolutely thrilled. Winning this award truly sets us apart from the competition in our field, and we hope we will inspire other small businesses everywhere to foster their success. We would strongly recommend any small business owner to visit to access the wealth of support and advice available from the Government to help your company grow.”

REALsafe® Technologies is a start-up business that launched a revolutionary safety-based app for motorcyclists in February 2013. The REALRIDER app lets motorcyclists track rides, record points of interest, and keeps them safe when they ride alone. It can automatically detect if a rider has had a crash and contacts the Emergency Service with their last known location and medical details.

REALsafe Technologies wins a package of prizes. For more details read the April issue of British Dealer News.
