Celebrating 20 years of entrepreneurship

Nominations for EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2018 UK are now closed. Regional finalists have been announced and regional winners will be announced in June and July. See key dates for more information.

For 20 years Entrepreneur Of The Year UK has been celebrating, supporting and connecting entrepreneurs. The programme recognises successful entrepreneurs making a positive impact on their society and the economy, and the legacies they’re building. The programme runs in 4 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 150 cities in over 60 countries.

“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.”
