There are several awards in the UK dedicated to celebrating the work of Britain’s aspiring entrepreneurs, but none more prestigious than the National Business Awards. The awards themselves have been running for 13 years, but this year the inaugural ‘New Entrepreneur of the Year’ award, sponsored by Vonage, has been launched to find the UK’s best aspiring entrepreneur.
This award celebrates the potential in the leaders of the UK’s most promising start-ups established over the last 18 months. Following an event held at St George’s Hall in Liverpool last month, where entrants had to present their business ideas to a panel of expert judges the five finalists for the award have been announced as:
- Emma Cerrone, Free:Formers
- Alistair Smit, The Magic Thermodynamic Box
- Ben Weaver, Outlook Publishing Ltd
- Kathryn Birch, Translive Global
- Jay Radia, Yieldify
The overall winner will be announced on 11th November 2014 at the National Business Awards event in London, where over 1,000 of the UK’s business leaders and influencers will gather celebrate the nation’s business achievements.
