For 20 years, Entrepreneur Of The Year UK has been celebrating, supporting and connecting entrepreneurs. The Entrepreneur Of The Year programme recognises successful entrepreneurs making a positive impact on their society and the economy, and the legacies they’re building. The UK programme is more than a business award, it’s a global programme which helps entrepreneurial businesses in more than 150 cities in over 60 countries.
Learn more about how the programme works throughout the UK, the eligibility criteria and information on our award categories.
“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.”
Kym Denny, CEO, hVIVO London & South regional winner and UK category winner 2016
“The programme has built a brilliant reputation over the years as a great place not only for entrepreneurs to be recognised for their achievements but also to meet likeminded people running businesses very similar to ours.”
Chris Hulatt & Simon Rogerson, Octopus Group, 2017 UK overall winner
