The award is the latest in a recent slew of honours for the company and its MD.
At an awards ceremony held on Friday 1st February, Kids@Play’s Nathaniel Southworth was named the winner of the Association of MBA’s Entrepreneurial Venture award (Private Sector) for the work done in buying and developing the Kids@Play business. The award is open to entry from MBA students either current or recently graduated from across 246 business schools globally.
The award submission, detailing Kids@Play’s first year, beat shortlisted finalists from fintech, medical and consumer facing industries.
Nathaniel Southworth, managing director Kids@Play, commented: “Winning this award is fantastic recognition for the toy industry as well as the team at Kids@Play. We were up against finalists with brilliant businesses outside our more traditional sector. I enjoyed going back to Leeds University Business School; balancing it with a full time role in a toy business was a challenge. We have lots more to go at in 2019, and I can’t thank everyone enough for all their support & well wishes.”
