A FIRM based on Anglesey has been honoured at the FSB Wales Celebrating Small Business Awards.

At the ceremony held in Cardiff on February 6, Ateb (answer) beat competitors from across Wales to be named Start-up Business of the Year.

The company aims is to provide answers to help organisations and businesses develop and implement Welsh language strategies in a practical and affordable way.

They work with clients from across Wales and beyond, including the BBC, the Open University, and Wales Millennium Centre – providing support on Welsh language matters, corporate communications and customer services.

The business was set-up in 2016 by directors Rhys Evans and Llinos Iorwerth, and is run from their office in Menai Bridge.

Ateb will now go on to compete at the UK FSB Awards, with an opportunity to be crowned Britain's Start-up Business of the Year.

Rhys Evans, one of the directors with Ateb, said: “We are delighted to win this award – it’s great to get recognition for the work that we do and how far we’ve come since we set the business up.

"We were up against some tough competition, and all the finalists in the category would have been worthy winners.”

Fellow director, Llinos Iorwerth, said: “We believe in our offer and are keen to highlight the opportunities that come with offering Welsh language services.

"We’re now looking forward to travelling to London for the UK awards and to take our message further.”
