The Great British Entrepreneurs Community is a place to showcase your business to the UK's largest community of entrepreneurs, share your ideas, generate and receive leads, find what you're looking for and connect with others.
We launched the Great British Entrepreneur Awards in 2013 with the aim to create a platform that celebrated and championed the entrepreneurs behind some of the UK’s brilliant businesses, not how much money they make.
We have been incredibly fortunate to be supported by some of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs who have supported our mission and joined our judging panel.
As our alumni of winners and finalists continued to grow, we realised that this programme was far more than ‘just’ an awards ceremony. Instead, we were at the helm of a community and thriving eco-system, providing all year round support and opportunities for winners and finalists to connect and showcase their businesses.
At the centre of one of the largest networks of entrepreneurs via The Great British Entrepreneur Awards, we know how tough it is right now for entrepreneurs at the helm of small businesses.
We believe that the appetite to buy local and support small will be accelerated and emphasised due to recent events and so this online community is a place for entrepreneurs to showcase their story, expertise, businesses specialities, links & collateral and contact details.
When you join you’ll also get access to quarterly ‘Ongoing Entrepreneur Development’ content in the form of videos and digital handouts delivered by industry experts and practitioners.
No fluff, this content will provide you with information and advice on the skills, concepts and processes all entrepreneurs need to master.
This community will be marketed as a place for buyers (consumer and B2B) to visit and browse when they want to purchase and support an independent business.
It will also be a place where entrepreneurs can find one another for collaborations and peer to peer support.
We are the team behind the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.
We’ve always been far more of a community than ‘just’ an awards programme but that community has always come together through face to face interactions and events. Knowing that that won’t be possible for quite some time, we decided to mobilise our community and give it an online platform.
If you run a business that serves and supports entrepreneurs then this is the place for you to meet and engage with them.
When the world returns to normal we’ll also be running a number of community events which all members will be invited to.
Then this is the platform for you.
We’ve lowered the barriers to entry here to make this community inclusive.
GBEA is a community that really does work to the benefit of everyone involved. Something you don’t realise, even being in business yourself, is just how many incredible British businesses there are and we should be sharing success stories and championing those getting out there and doing it more – and that’s exactly what GBEA does.
