The Great British Entrepreneur Awards took place on Tuesday 22nd November at the Lancaster London, the event was sponsored by NatWest. I hosted a table of inspirational entrepreneurs. I judged the “Entrepreneurs Champion of the Year category, which had 6 great entries, However congratulations to Matthew Gubba CEO and Founder of BizBritain.
I was given the opportunity to have a table and fill it with inspirational entrepreneurs in which I did by inviting along Bianca Miller – Finalist on The Apprentice, Joseph Valente – winner of The Apprentice 2015, Derin Cag – Founder of Richtopia, Ben Towers – winner of The Great British Entrepreneur 2015 and some of the GripIt team.
The table was great and we all had a fantastic evening celebrating the achievement of all entrepreneurs across the UK.
It’s great to see that entrepreneurs are being recognised for their dedication and hard work, that’s why events like The Great British Entrepreneur Awards are so important.
After your 3-course meal and wine the evening then started with the awards, with 16 category awards given out, some of the categories being Creative Industries Entrepreneur of the Year, Great British Entrepreneur of the Year, Retail Entrepreneur of the Year, Small Business Entrepreneur of the Year, Start-Up Entrepreneur of the Year and Young Entrepreneur of the Year. There were many well-known businesses that were up for nominations such as Climb Online, Tangle Teezer, ASOS, LADBible and many more.
The evening then finished with the after party and drinks upstairs where everyone got a chance to mingle with each other and have a dance. It was also interesting to hear other entrepreneur’s inspirational stories about their businesses, how they started and where they want to be in the future.
It was great to be apart and involved in the evening supporting entrepreneurs and growing businesses. I would like to thank The Great British Entrepreneur Awards for asking me to judge the champion category, it was a great pleasure. All the nominees did so well.
