This recognition reflects their exceptional entrepreneurial spirit, dedication, and remarkable achievements within their industry.
Now in its 11th year, and previously described as “The Grammys for Entrepreneurship”, The Great British Entrepreneur Awards celebrate the outstanding individuals and businesses that drive innovation, generate employment opportunities, and contribute to the growth of the UK economy. These awards serve as a platform to honor the remarkable stories of entrepreneurs who have overcome challenges, demonstrated resilience, and make significant contributions to their communities.
“When we launched, we had expectations of turning over £150,000 in year 1 and employing 2 full-time staff. As we rounded out our first year, we’ve reached a mind-blowing £7 million in turnover, 2 offices relocations and shortly onboarding our twelfth fulltime staff member.” said Oliver Lewis, Director at Hawkstone Commercials.

The awards ceremony will take place on November 20th 2023 at London’s Grosvenor House, where industry leaders, innovators, and influencers will gather to celebrate the achievements of the finalists.
Founder of The Great British Entrepreneur Awards Francesca James says “Every year I am blown away with the quantity and quality of applications we receive, and this year is no exception. The Great British Entrepreneur Awards receives thousands of applications annually and the competition is tough. I am truly inspired by the remarkable accomplishments of this year’s finalists. Their collective achievements of generating over £2.7 billion in turnover and employing over 33,000 people demonstrate the exceptional impact they have made in their industries and communities.
