Three is the one of the biggest UK operators and was named Best Network for Data 2018 at the Mobile Choice Consumer Awards and Best High Street Retailer 2019 at the Mobile Industry Awards.

Three is particularly committed to supporting small business and start-up entrepreneurs, and in April 2019, it launched its first dedicated business offering, Three Means Business. Three Means Business is tailored to the UK’s brightest small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs. From dog groomer, gym owner or therapists, doll maker, taxi driver or taxidermist, Three is ripping up the rulebook to allow small business to concentrate on the things they love.

Offering not just a mobile contract, Three is also giving these companies a ‘step-up’ by offering them additional free subscriptions to the some of the best business tools out there. Selected tools include website and logo builder Wix, accounting software FreshBooks, print and design company MOO, and office provider, WeWork.

Francesca James, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “We were really impressed with Three’s commitment to small businesses with its launch of the Three Means Business offering. In our eyes, there is no better mobile network to help us celebrate and champion all of the amazing entrepreneurs right across the country.”

Shadi Halliwell, CMO at Three, said: “We were keen to join the Great British Entrepreneur Awards in its quest to support and recognise all the inspiring entrepreneurs, that are the backbone of UK industry. They are often responsible for positive changes to the way we live and work with their constant belief that anything is possible. We believe in them and their challenger mentality and this is a perfect way to encourage and celebrate every one of them and what they stand for.”
