The Queen’s Award for Enterprise


HT2 Labs: 2019 Winners of The Queen’s Award for Enterprise


HT2 Labs are among 60 organizations nationwide to have been presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, for their innovation with the multi-award-winning Learning Record Store (LRS), Learning Locker®.

The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious awards for UK businesses, recognizing and celebrating success across the nation – often thought of as a ‘knighthood for business’. The awards acknowledge outstanding achievement across four categories: innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility.

Winners are invited to a Royal Reception at Buckingham Palace where they will be presented with a Grant of Appointment and a commemorative crystal bowl.

Upon hearing of the news, CEO Ben Betts commented:

“I am astonished and humbled to be named amongst the fortunate few who show themselves worthy of recognition by the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise. Our company tagline, ‘the R&D company for Learning and Performance’ showcases both our intent and our attitude towards breakthrough innovation for our industry; the Queen’s Award shows that we are delivering on our intention.

My team has been working tirelessly for years on both Learning Locker® and our other innovations and so, whilst this might seem like an overnight success story to some, it is anything but that. This is the result of many years of tireless work and dedication, often pursued in the face of great uncertainty.

We are proud to push the online learning industry forward towards a next generation of learning system that truly exploits the power of data. To do this in a way that is open source and available to everyone is absolutely groundbreaking. Thank you to my team and to the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for recognizing our efforts and ambition.”
