We are absolutely delighted to announce that SnapDragon Monitoring has been awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise within the Innovation category. This truly is one of Britain’s most prestigious accolades. It recognises and celebrates business success across the UK.

SnapDragon are one of 8 other businesses in Scotland to be recognised with a Queen’s Award in 2020. This incredible achievement certainly provides such much needed cause for celebration. Particularly at a time such as this when celebrating business success feels like a far-off memory.

Her Majesty the Queen, personally approves all the winners of this award. In normal times we would be receiving a visit from her local representative The Lord-Lieutenant of the county. Furthermore, this would then be followed with a celebration at Buckingham Palace later in the year. Naturally, some of these plans are on hold, but we look forward to marking the occasion formally at a later date. 

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation

A little background information on the award itself. Quite simply a Queen’s Award recognises success. 

A Queen’s Award recognises the outstanding performance of British companies. Over the years this has evolved to cover fields of innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity. SnapDragon Monitoring joins over 7,000 UK enterprises to receive this Royal recognition. This year, 220 businesses across the UK will receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, 90% of which are small businesses.

Winners of the award are blessed with the honour of displaying the Queen’s Award emblem for the next 5 years. This mark is an international endorsement from Her Majesty the Queen. 

A little about SnapDragon Monitoring

With our Headquarters in Edinburgh, SnapDragon was born out of a true need for online brand protection. Head Dragon, Rachel Jones’ faced her own personal experience of counterfeiting. Her award-winning baby product the TotSeat faced a relentless attack of online fakes which threatened to damage the brand and business that she had built. 

Originally designed for SME’s but now used by major brands around the world, SnapDragon’s innovative software takes the hard-work out of monitoring your brand online and tackles the fight against fakes head on. This Queen’s Award recognises our success in giving companies, of all sizes, the tools and confidence needed to monitor and fight fakes on the world’s busiest online marketplaces.
