Kukd.com are proud sponsors of this year’s Wales StartUp Awards, a very worthy award for any new Welsh business.

The awards celebrate entrepreneurial individuals and their new ventures, recognising that new businesses really are the lifeblood of the Welsh economy, creating the majority of the employment opportunities in the country.

Although a national company, Kukd.com was founded in Wales in 2015, by entrepreneur Mr Shelim Hussain,  who has also been awarded an MBE for his services to business in Wales. Therefore we feel it vitally important to support and celebrate all local businesses, not just the partnered restaurants and takeaways that we work alongside.
