Entrepreneurs make a difference: they create jobs and wealth, bring new innovative products and concepts to the market and encourage creativity and competition.
Our Entrepreneur Of The Year programme celebrates those men and women who are building and leading successful, growing and dynamic businesses. We celebrate their success, the contribution they’re making to our economy and the legacy they’re building.
Now in its 31st year globally and 19th year in the UK, Entrepreneur Of The Year is more than a business award. It’s a global programme that helps and supports entrepreneurs build successful and sustainable businesses in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries.
In the UK it runs in four regions – London & South, Midlands, North and Scotland – culminating in a national award event in October 2017 to announce the UK Entrepreneur Of The Year winner. The winner will then go on to compete for the prestigious title of World Entrepreneur Of The Year in June 2018.
- Connect: Meet key business leaders and other entrepreneurs through the programme and join our exclusive Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni community. Connect with entrepreneurs across the UK and the rest of the world.
- Celebrate: Throughout the programme we celebrate passion, determination and success, giving recognition to entrepreneurs who are making a difference. The programme not only recognises your success but also recognises the hard working team that is behind you helping to build your successful company.
- Support: Share creative thinking with peers around opportunities and how to tackle some of the key challenges currently facing entrepreneurs. Benefit from our insights into the key drivers of business growth which we have identified from working with fast growth entrepreneurs around the world.
“I would encourage others to enter because it is so much more than a mere contest. It’s a forum that brings together like-minded, action-orientated visionaries to celebrate collective achievements.”
