Breaking the Mould

Past award Cermonies

Breaking the Mould began in 2019 with the aim of shining a spotlight on the growing innovation-led organisations, businesses, not-for-profits and charities that have benefitted from the suite of innovative support programmes that are available from Keele University.

The awards celebrate Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire’s engaged collaborative community, and will culminate in an exciting celebration of local enterprises that are the best in their field.

The 2019 Breaking the Mould awards took place in the Smart Innovation Hub on Keele University campus on 17 October 2019 and were hosted by award-winner TV presenter Anita Rani

The 2020 Breaking the Mould Awards took place online on 2 December 2020 and were hosted by award-winning TV presenter Anita Rani
