Founded in 2013, the Great British Entrepreneur Awards acknowledges the hard work and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs and businesses in the United Kingdom.

It celebrates the incredible stories that have taken entrepreneurs to where they are today, regardless of size or turnover. The 2019 programme sees the Awards held in eight regions – Midlands, Wales, the South West, the North East, the North West, Scotland, the South East and London & the East of England.

Central to the ethos of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards is being more than just ‘an awards ceremony’ – its sense of community, a thriving eco-system of support all year round, providing opportunities for winners and finalists to connect and showcase their business.

The Awards have celebrated some outstanding entrepreneurs who have gone on to become household names, including:

Julie Deane OBE, Cambridge Satchel Co.

James Watt, BrewDog

Shaun Pulfrey, Tangle Teezer

Hannah & Sophie Pycroft, Spectrum Collections

Alan & Juliet Barratt, Grenade

Celia Hodson, Hey Girls
