There’s no doubt that Crunch is right at the cutting edge of online accountancy technology, so it’s only natural that MD Darren Fell is a judge at the PHP Virtual Business of the Year Awards 2010.

The accolade is the first of its kind and rewards those young, fledgling companies that make innovative use of the web in the way do business.

The awards are being hosted by PeoplePerHour.com, the networking site where freelancers can find work with small and medium-sized businesses. There are currently over 40,000 freelancers signed up to the service and almost 13,000 businesses using the site to outsource their work.

Darren will be a judge alongside Paul Birch who co-founded social networking site Bebo and is an investor in Crunch. The deadline for entries is 15th September 2010 and award winners will be announced within 30 days of the application deadline.
