On Thursday 8 February 2018, X-Forces Enterprise and Soldering On Awards proudly hosted nearly 200 guests, including 40 finalists, at the Soldering On Awards Finalists Drinks Reception held at the House of Lords in Westminster, London.
It was an evening that sparkled with the energy, drive and talent gathered in one room. Ren Kapur MBE, X-Forces CEO and Founder was present together with Martin Wing, Executive Chair and the XFE Team. We were also delighted to have our Soldiering On and X-Forces supporters and sponsors in the room, including Cisco, Landmarc and Sage – the inaugural Business Awards Sponsors for 2018.
Commenting on the event, Lord Young, X-Forces Patron, said that “It is an absolute privilege to see so many talented members of the Armed Forces community shortlisted for the 2018 Soldering On Awards. X-Forces Enterprise are particularly delighted to be able to celebrate military-owned businesses this year with their three categorised Business of the Year awards. Well done to all who have been shortlisted.”
Ren added, “It was absolutely amazing to see so many people come together to celebrate the achievements of this wonderfully talented and giving community. Myself and the X-Forces Enterprise team are exceptionally proud of our businesses that have reached this finalist stage – CrossFit SpitFire, Sporting Force Ltd, AAA Caring Caretaker Ltd and Doddl. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our corporate members Cisco, Landmarc and Sage for their sponsorship of our three Business of the Year Award categories – your support is invaluable to this community. We are now all looking forward to the Awards night on April 20th!”
