After making it official and going public with our new headline partner, Team GBEA are super excited for our first date of 2020!
The Great British Entrepreneur Awards in partnership with Starling Bank will be open for entries on 2nd March 2020.
2019 was a brilliant year for us as we received 3,000 entries, traveled to three new regions, changed the style of the regional finals, shortlisted more than 700 entrepreneurs and crowned more than 100 regional winners and 14 national winners.
There’s a lot of love in this community, just ask our 2019 national winner, Celia Hodson of Hey Girls. Celia said; “Winning The Great British Entrepreneur of the year 2019 has been a very special experience for both myself and the Hey Girls team. Whilst only a few months in, the recognition and opportunities are coming thick and fast. As a start-up Social Enterprise this kind of accolade is invaluable to help us grow and evolve. Onwards and upwards!”
Looking forward as we enter our eighth year, we can’t wait to get started on the 2020 programme with the support of Starling Bank and meet all of you lovely entrepreneurs!
We’d also LOVE to see you at Great British Entrepreneurs LIVE, a three-day entrepreneurs get together, featuring some of Britain’s hottest entrepreneurial businesses showcasing their businesses, products and services. It will also host speaker sessions, panels and Q&As with Great Britain’s top entrepreneurs and emerging talent.
