29 April 2015 11:35


Entries are now open for the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2015, the annual event celebrating entrepreneurship in the UK.

Hailed as the benchmark for entrepreneurial success in Britain, this year’s Great British Entrepreneur Awards, in association with NatWest, has 16 categories aimed at entrepreneurs across the spectrum of size and scale and across multiple industries, including: Digital Entrepreneur of the Year, International Trade Entrepreneur of the Year, Food and Drink Entrepreneur of the Year, Social Enterprise Entrepreneur of the Year (both in the UK and Internationally), Young Entrepreneur of the Year and Small Business Entrepreneur of the Year.

Simon Burton, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur of Awards, said: “We witness how entrepreneurs are driving forward in the face of a challenging, fast-evolving business environment. Using innovative solutions and breaking existing paradigms entrepreneurs are a driving force in the economy. Their contributions to their industries and entrepreneurialism in the UK deserve to be recognised.

“Last year’s Awards saw 65 entrepreneurs being recognised for their achievements. This year we are hoping to hear even more entrepreneurial success stories and celebrate their triumphs.”

Since the inaugural Awards, a number of prominent entrepreneurs have been awarded gongs for their accomplishments, including:
• Julie Deane, Cambridge Satchel Company
• Rowan Gormley, Naked Wines
• Nish and Sach Kukadia,
• Sara Davies, Crafter’s Companion
• Darren Westlake, Crowdcube

James Watt, the Captain of BrewDog, won three Awards at the 2014 ceremony, including the Grand Prix accolade of Great British Entrepreneur of the Year. James commented after the ceremony, “It’s a huge honour and I am super excited to receive these three awards! It seems like just yesterday, Martin and I started with a small bank loan, brewing in our garage. Our mission has always been and always will be to make people as passionate about great craft beer as we are. We are so excited for the future and have an amazing team at BrewDog who all work unbelievably hard. Thank you so much for the awards and recognition.”

The closing deadline for entries is 5pm Friday 31 July, with the nominees, those passing the first stage of judging, being announced in August. The Finalists, those who pass the second stage of judging and will be at the Awards Ceremony, will be notified in early October. The Awards campaign will culminate in a black-tie Ceremony in November during Global Entrepreneurship Week.

To enter, entrepreneurs need to fill out the entry form on the Great British Entrepreneur Awards website. For further information, visit
