The Great British Business Heroes’ mission is to provide a platform to recognise and celebrate the very best organisations and individuals supporting small businesses and the business owners, directors and entrepreneurs that lead them.
Small businesses are the lifeline of our economy. They are creating jobs, increasing productivity, and capitalising on growth opportunities here and globally.
Small businesses account for 99.9% of the business population, three fifths of the employment and around half of turnover in the UK private sector.
The UK economy is facing ’serious headwinds’ that call for additional support for small businesses, and this awards programme will recognise organisations and the individuals within them who are leading initiatives and campaigns which truly support the small business eco-system at this much needed time.
We are joined by a panel of over 300 judges. Our judges are all entrepreneurs at the helm of small, ambitious and growing businesses in Great Britain.
The judges shortlist will then be taken to a closed public vote including a far wider cohort of some 50,000 founders and entrepreneurs.
