The Dartford Business Awards is brought to you by Dartford Borough Council and Oxford Innovation together with several core partners, sponsors and local ambassadors for the Dartford area. What we all have in common is a passion for business and a fundamental belief that the Dartford area is a great place to base a successful, growing business. 

The partnership between Dartford Borough Council and Oxford Innovation is rooted in the management of the Nucleus Innovation Centre at the Bridge. The Bridge is a mixed-use business and innovation park that has been designed to encourage an entrepreneurial culture and the development of knowledge-based industries in the Thames Gateway.
