Amplified Business Content – Great British Entrepreneur Awards
Produced by the publishers of Fresh Business Thinking, the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, in association with NatWest, acknowledges the hard work and inspiring stories of British entrepreneurs and businesses in Great Britain.
Regarded as the benchmark for entrepreneurial success in the UK, the Awards celebrate the contributions and innovations of British entrepreneurs and their impact on the economy. The awards are built around the notion that the entrepreneurial story is often more important than the balance sheet.
Now moving into its fifth year, the Great British Entrepreneur Awards celebrate entrepreneurs who embody a spirit of disruption, innovation and enterprise; recognising business leaders from multiple industries across the 17 awards categories.
Previous winners have included Julie Deane MBE, founder of the Cambridge Satchel Company, James Watt, co-founder of Brewdog and Alexander Solomou, founder of the Lad Bible Group.
The Great British Entrepreneur Awards are all about celebrating the wonderful stories that entrepreneurs have, and helping them on their journey to success.
