Diabetes Digital Media (DDM) has been named ‘Service Industries Entrepreneur of the Year’ in the Midlands at the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards for 2018.

Now in its sixth year, the Royal Bank of Scotland Great British Entrepreneur Awards celebrates the hard work and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs in the UK. The regional gala final of the NatWest awards took place on 13 November at a special ceremony in Birmingham.

The ‘Service Industries Entrepreneur of the Year’ award acknowledges Diabetes Digital Media’s award-winning Low Carb Program and Diabetes Forum, the largest online diabetes community in Europe.

The Low Carb Program’s one year health outcomes were published in the peer reviewed Journal of Medical Internet Research earlier this year.

Francesca James, co-founder of the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “2018 has been a record year for the Great British Entrepreneur Awards in the number of entries we received. But the quality of applications has been above and beyond what we’ve seen in previous years. Just getting to the gala final as a finalist is a huge achievement given the competition on show, so to walk away with a trophy in your hand deserves huge congratulations.”
