Now in its seventh year, the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards celebrate the hard work and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs, rather than the business’ balance sheet.
Gordon Merrylees, managing director of entrepreneurship at NatWest, said: “NatWest is proud to support the Great British Entrepreneur Awards celebrating another year of amazing achievements for entrepreneurs starting and growing businesses from every corner of the country. Supporting entrepreneurs is a key priority for NatWest and our dedicated programme of fully funded accelerator hubs, mentoring, insight and bespoke coaching, is specifically designed to meet the needs of entrepreneurs who want to start, scale and succeed in business. Congratulations to all of the winners and to those who were shortlisted for one of these prestigious awards.”
Francesca James, founder of the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “The inaugural Health & Beauty Entrepreneur of the Year Awards will be presented to the entrepreneurs who make a real difference when it comes to bettering our health, beauty and wellbeing. From those who create and distribute cosmetic products, to the individuals revolutionising the health and fitness markets. The entrepreneurs who create the clothes that we wear and those who focus on bettering our wellbeing, the Health & Beauty Entrepreneur of the Year Award will seek out those not only attaining excellence in their field, but also those who put an emphasis on creating better lifestyles.”
The Great British Entrepreneur Awards celebrate and champions the stories of entrepreneurs. True entrepreneurs are as much about their story as they are about their balance sheet. The Great British Entrepreneur Awards celebrate the truly inspiring entrepreneurs who are the agents of positive change in our country.
As the winners of the Health & Beauty category for the Midlands, the Style Coaching Institute® will now go to the National Final of the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards, which takes place in London this November.
