Ahead of the 2022 Great British Entrepreneur Awards, we’re teaming up with JCDecaux to present you ‘Out-of-Home at Home Grown’, an exclusive event that brings together like-minded entrepreneurs for a day of networking. 

GBEA Partnership announcement

JCDecaux is the world’s largest Digital Out-of-Home media business, with products and services present at the heart of communities in more than 80 countries across the world, reaching millions of people.

It all started in 1964 when the company’s entrepreneurial Founder Jean-Claude Decaux had an idea that would change cities across the world – to provide and maintain bus shelters free of charge – paid for by the advertising posters displayed on them.

In the UK, JCDecaux media channels are located across the country in city centres, transport hubs, shopping malls and supermarkets, and on major arterial roads. They create communication channels that help businesses grow and thrive and help non-commercial organisations reach the widest possible audience for their important messages – and they’re joining us to help our community do exactly that! 

Here at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards – we recognise entrepreneurs’ success and support them on their continued business journey by providing them with resources and a community for them to lean on. With the help and support of partners like JCDecaux, we are able to fulfil this mission.

Discussing the partnership Mark Bucknell, Chief Commercial Officer at JCDecaux UK said: “JCDecaux was an entrepreneurial idea that grew into a global business, and we’re hugely passionate about supporting the entrepreneurs of today to become the global businesses of tomorrow. 

“Through this partnership with the Great British Entrepreneur Awards I hope we can help a new cohort of innovative businesses utilise the power of Out-of-Home media’s public screen to scale and grow by reaching a wider group of potential consumers, transforming them into customers, and I’m really excited to see who the winners will be.” 

Founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, Francesca James said: “We’re so excited to have JCDecaux on board to bring our community of entrepreneurs an event that will provide them with resources, advice and support they may not have access to otherwise. We know how important advertising is as a business, so who better to help than the experts at JCDecaux?”
