Propel by Deloitte have joined the Great British Entrepreneur Awards as a Partner for the 2018 awards programme.

Now in its sixth year, the Great British Entrepreneur Awards recognise the hard work and inspiring stories of British entrepreneurs, rather than just their financial successes.

The Awards have celebrated some outstanding entrepreneurs who have gone on to become household names. Previous winners include Julie Deane, Founder of The Cambridge Satchel Company, James Watt, Founder of Brewdog, Alexander Solomou, Founder and CEO of TheLADBible Group, and most recently, Hannah & Sophie Pycroft of Spectrum Collections Ltd.

Founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, Francesca James said: “We are delighted to be working with Propel by Deloitte. They have created a strong product, which addresses the longstanding headaches entrepreneurs and their management teams are often faced with.”

Mark Doleman, Partner Lead at Propel by Deloitte commented: “We are delighted to sponsor the Great British Entrepreneur Awards this year. The Awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise the hard work and innovative ideas of British entrepreneurs.”

Mark continued: “Propel by Deloitte works alongside ambitious early stage and high-growth businesses to help them fulfil their potential. As a recent start-up within Deloitte, we understand the challenges entrepreneurs face and are dedicated to make a difference to their business”

Propel by Deloitte delivers real-time accounting and analytics to support ambitious start-ups as they grow, taking the burden of bookkeeping off their hands, managing all of a business’s accounting essentials, and ensuring they have a finance expert at their side. Alongside this, Propel by Deloitte deliver bespoke data analytics to help businesses track how their business is performing today, and a whole range of business planning support to help you forecast for tomorrow.

Following a hugely successful 2017 awards programme, applications for the 2018 awards will open in March. National finals will be held in Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester, and London, and will celebrate entrepreneurship across 12 categories including Start-Up, Creative Industries, Innovation and Young.
