Last week, Geneius were announced as the winner of the CELS Business for Life ‘most-promising new business’ award (sponsored by Marks & Clerk, Patent & Trademark Attorneys).
The North East’s Centre for Excellence for Life Sciences’ (CELS) search for talent received a record number of entries this year and the category won by Geneius received the most nominations overall. Jerry Barnes, Managing Director of Geneius, received the award on behalf of the company at a lavish black-tie ceremony hosted by BBC presenter Wendy Gibson at the Newcastle/Gateshead Hilton.
The Business for Life awards, now in their third year, are organised by CELS to recognise regional excellence and achievement in innovation, export and technology in the healthcare and life sciences’ sector, a market sector thriving in the NE and injecting £8 billion into the regional economy, securing the employment of more than 172,000 people.
As the winner of this prestigious award Geneius will represent the NE at the National Business Competition Finals early next year.
