Entrepreneur Of The Year UK has been celebrating, supporting and connecting entrepreneurs since it first launched in the UK more than 20 years ago. The programme recognises successful entrepreneurs making a positive impact on their society and the economy, and the legacies they’re building. Entrepreneur Of The Year UK runs in four regions – London & South, Midlands, North, and Scotland. Entrants compete in their regional programme based on their business’ main location. The UK programme is more than a business award – it’s part of a global programme which helps entrepreneurial businesses in more than 145 cities in over 50 countries.
In June 2018, Chris Hulatt and Simon Rogerson of Octopus Group competed at World Entrepreneur Of The Year in Monaco and represented the UK with pride. Watch this video to find out more about our 2017 UK overall winners.
“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.”

“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.”
