Former Catalyst Centre tenant continues their winning streak at local business awards

Last night we were at the Test Valley Business Awards, showing our support for the myriad exceptional companies who are doing great things in the local area. A very enjoyable evening was had by all, in particular, former Catalyst Centre tenants, HealthQuest Solutions, who were the success story of the night, scooping not one, but two awards – not bad going for a very new start-up.

The Science Park have sponsored the Innovation and Technology award for five years now, and are dedicated to supporting companies passionate about innovation and technology in the Test Valley area. The judging panel for this award, which included Southampton Science Park CEO Peter Birkett, had a difficult job to do, with some exceptional companies put forward. They rose to the challenge of selecting the very best that the Test Valley area has to offer. The final line-up consists of some home grown talent to be proud of including Wren Laboratories LTD, HealthQuest Solutions and Mobile Onboard, three amazing businesses pushing the boundaries of innovation and technology. HealthQuest Solutions have shown incredible growth in the space of just a year, already turning over £1.5 million, and it was this spectacular growth that pushed them into first place.

Peter Birkett was delighted to see a Catalyst Centre tenant take the stage, and commented “We are enormously proud of HealthQuest Solutions, who have extracted maximum benefit from their time at the Catalyst Centre, and are now looking like they are becoming a real force to be reckoned with. We are delighted that they have chosen to stay at the Park, and look forward to seeing their business flourish.

All the nominees and finalists are truly exceptional, but seeing our tenants rewarded for their efforts is particularly pleasing. We wish all the finalists, and the winners HealthQuest Solutions continuing success throughout 2013 and beyond.”

A huge congratulations to HealthQuest Solutions for winning both the New Business of the Year award, and the Innovation and Technology award
