Northern Ireland’s investment and business community met in Belfast last night to discover the winners of the annual BVCA Management Team Awards.
These awards, produced in association with Grant Thornton, are all about highlighting outstanding businesses across the UK that are backed by private equity and venture capital. Throughout the course of the year we tour the country and last night we arrived at The Merchant Hotel in Belfast to announce the champions in the Northern Ireland category.
The winners include a wireless collaboration tool for companies and schools, and a family-owned building firm, both of them outstanding performers in their fields and both backed by the UK’s leading business investors.

Since its inception in 2012, Belfast-based DisplayNote has grown into a successful software solutions business with a good turnover and further growth anticipated.

Backed by BGF
Braidwater is a successful, family-owned construction business that has grown to become one of Northern Ireland’s leading housebuilders. From their head office in Londonderry, Patrick McGinnis and his team implemented a successful strategy that helped the business expand and navigate the challenges of the financial crisis, fuelling strong growth and EBITDA.
DisplayNote and Braidwater will now be entered into the national final alongside companies from across the rest of the UK. The national winners will be announced and presented at the BVCA Gala Dinner in London on 28 November.
