Entries for this year's Great British Entrepreneur Awards have more than doubled compared with last year's.

The vast majority of economic data in recent months has pointed towards a strong economic revival, driven by small businesses and entrepreneurs.

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards aims to celebrate the entrepreneurs driving the economy, particularly the stories behind their success, not the balance sheets.

Simon Burton, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: "The entries for this year’s Great British Entrepreneur Awards have quite literally taken our collective breaths away.

"They are inspiring, exhilarating, heart-warming and humbling. British Entrepreneurship is alive, well and kicking the established order."

This year's Great Entrepreneur Awards takes place on 19 November at Old Billingsgate, London, during Global Entrepreneurship Week.
