We're really excited this week, because our founders, Shane and Tony, won a BT Essence of the Entrepreneur award for hungryhouse.
Shane went along to a star-studded event at the Oxo Tower (by the River Thames), and collected our award from none other than Peter Jones. Perhaps the best bit, though, is that all the winners got to be photographed by legendary photographer, Rankin.
This year, a lot of the winners were companies like us, whose success is driven by technological innovation. Some great ideas include a company making wild jelly shapes -- any design you'd like -- and a traditional fruit stall with a twist.
