The judging panel comprises esteemed business personalities and founders of iconic British brands such as Specsavers, Poundland, and Innocent.
Previous winners of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, including prominent figures like Steven Bartlett of Social Chain, Jordan Brompton of myenergi, and James Watt of BrewDog, have not only revolutionized their industries but also contributed significantly to the UK economy, fostering economic growth and job creation.

“We’re thrilled to sponsor this year’s Great British Entrepreneur Awards. The enormous contribution entrepreneurs make to the British economy is often overlooked and undervalued. This year’s awards are an opportunity to celebrate this community of innovators, and we are proud to be involved.”
