10 to watch

Douglas magazine’s annual 10 to Watch Awards are given to ten distinctive new businesses less than three years old who show incredible promise in their field.

Each year the 10 to Watch Awards are judged by a qualified independent panel of judges that reviews applications from an impressive number of startups vying to be chosen.

Winners receive well-deserved applause, build brand recognition and take the spotlight as we showcase the Island’s spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship.



In 2022, we celebrate 13 years of the award program, and for the second year will announce our winners during a special broadcast on CHEK TV, 6:30 pm on Saturday, April 2. We’ll also introduce them in our April/May 10 to Watch issue, on newsstands in early April.

Over 90% of the 130 businesses celebrated so far have gone on to long-term success, and several have received – and are receiving — international acclaim.

Celebrating new businesses is especially important in 2022, given the challenges we face as a society and as a business community. To not only start a new business during a pandemic but also succeed and build is a testament to the grit, determination and passion of the entrepreneurial spirit.

Our winners — like many startups before and after — have overcome challenges thrown their way and stand as shining examples of the immense talent that drives our business community.


Douglas magazine’s 10 to Watch Awards would not be possible without the support of our sponsors.
