YOU GOT TO START ME UP: Construct Tuition shortlisted for Northern Ireland UK StartUp Award 2024

STARTUP business, Construct Tuition, has been named a finalist ahead of the Northern Ireland final of the StartUp Awards.

The UK StartUp Awards was launched to recognise the booming start-up scene across the UK which has accelerated over the last few years with over 900,000 new businesses founded in the UK in 2023, a 12% increase from the year before.

Over 900 businesses have been shortlisted for this year’s UK StartUp Awards and the contribution of these firms – all of which were started in the last three years – is significant, having created nearly 6,000 new jobs since they were established and generating annual sales of £480 million.

Construct Tuition is a training and consultancy company based in Magheralin, and it is on a mission to improve quality and building safety in construction by upskilling the workforce in practical quality skills and reducing error and maximising efficiency through digital quality processes. Founded by Lorna Hagan in 2021. The business has been nominated for the Business to Business StartUp of the Year Award in Northern Ireland.

Lorna Hagan, founder of Construct Tuition, said: “As the owner of Construct Tuition, being shortlisted for the Northern Ireland UK StartUp Award 2024 fills me with immense pride and gratitude that our journey of empowering the construction industry with quality skills and digital processes has been recognised.

THE FINAL STRETCH: Startup business, Construct Tuition, has been named a finalist ahead of the Northern Ireland final of the StartUp Awards

Founded with a vision to make a difference, this nomination reaffirms our commitment to driving innovation and excellence in construction while breaking barriers and stereotypes of what a leader in construction looks like, while proudly representing Northern Ireland.

It’s not just an acknowledgement of our work but also a testament to the collective effort of our team, the companies we work with and the impact we strive to create.”

Supported nationally by ScoreApp, GS1 UK, Starling Bank, OVHcloud, GiftRound, Airwallex, the programme will celebrate the achievements of the amazing individuals who have turned an idea into an opportunity and taken the risk to launch a new product or service.

The cohort of finalists will be considered for the regional prizes by a panel of seasoned judges with experience founding or supporting entrepreneurial ventures. The winners from each region will then be invited to the first UK final taking place at Ideas Fest, the Glastonbury for Business festival in Tring, Hertfordshire on 12th September 2024.

Professor Dylan Jones-Evans OBE, the creator of the UK StartUp Awards, said: “​​Start-up businesses are the lifeblood of any economy, being responsible for new jobs, innovation and wealth creation across the UK. All the finalists this year represent the best of those entrepreneurs who have spotted an opportunity and through their sheer hard work, talent and perseverance, have created amazing new businesses that are creating real impact in their sectors. Building on the success of previous years, we are now looking to identify the ‘best of the best’ with all the finalists who win their category in their region going on to represent their region at the first ever UK National StartUp Awards final later this year”.

The UK StartUp Awards was created in collaboration with the team behind the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, one of the most successful awards programmes in the UK. The UK StartUp Awards are running for the third year after launching in 2022.
