The Great British Entrepreneur Awards is delighted to announce GS1 UK as the latest organisation to join its group of partners.


GS1 UK is a leading provider of barcodes, working to harness the power of standards to transform the way people work and live. 

With a community of over two million organisations around the world, GS1 UK helps businesses to uniquely identify, accurately capture and automatically share information about your products, locations, assets and more.

Entering its 10th year in 2022, the Great British Entrepreneur Awards acknowledges the hard work and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs and businesses in the United Kingdom. Central to its ethos is being more than just ‘an awards ceremony’ – it’s a sense of community, and a thriving ecosystem of support all year round that provides opportunities for winners and finalists to connect and showcase their business.

Francesca James, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “GS1 UK is a leader in barcode provision, making it an essential component of operation for any business. I am delighted that the team at GS1 UK is joining us in our mission to champion the country’s entrepreneurs and their thriving businesses, especially as we enter our 10th year of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.”

Sarah Atkins, chief marketing officer and memberships director at GS1 UK, said: “GS1 UK are excited to announce our partnership with the Great British Entrepreneur Awards. Over 80% of our members are start up businesses and we recognise the need to provide the support and tools that they need to thrive.  The challenges entrepreneurs face are varied and complex, but we also know that the communities they form are incredibly supportive,  consequently we believe there needs to be a dedicated support platform that recognises these challenges.  This is what we hope our partnership will provide.”
