The Great British Entrepreneur Awards is delighted to announce its partnership with Mazuma, the UK’s first subscription-based accountancy service.

Founded in 2013, 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 provide opportunities for winners and finalists to connect and showcase their business.

With that in mind, the Great British Entrepreneur Awards is particularly proud to welcome one of its winners as a partner in 2020. Mazuma’s founders, Lucy Cohen and Sophie Hughes, were named Disruptor of the Year for the Wales region at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards in 2019.

Mazuma is the UK’s leading accountancy service for small and micro businesses. Using its digital service, Mazuma takes care of everything, meaning business owners never have to worry about bookkeeping, accounts or tax again.

The partnership will also see Lucy Cohen join the judging panel to help determine a new set of winners in 2020.

Francesca James, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “Lucy and Sophie are extremely talented entrepreneurs and have disrupted the accountancy industry, making it more accessible for its end user. They have created a service that enables entrepreneurs to really focus on running the business.

“I’m delighted to welcome Mazuma as our new partners in what is already a very exciting year for us, and I look forward to working towards our mutual mission of supporting entrepreneurs in the UK.”

Lucy Cohen, co-founder of Mazuma, said: “Having been through the awards process with the GBEA myself I know how thorough it is and how many exciting businesses are part of the alumni. The energy and quality of the GBEA makes it a great fit for us as a partner and we’re thrilled to be able to work with the community. Likewise I cannot wait to be a judge for the awards and to see what the next year holds for entrepreneurs across the UK. It really is a prestigious alumni at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards and we’re honoured to be able to be a part of it.”

To celebrate the announcement of the partnership, Mazuma is offering all members of the GBEA community a free three-month subscription to its services. To find out more about Mazuma’s accountancy service and to redeem this offer, click here.
