The Fifth Annual National Entrepreneur Awards

They’re back… bigger and better than ever before – and YOU should enter!!

Stand up and be proud of what you’ve achieved…

As entrepreneurs we’re always focused on ‘what’s next’. We’re notoriously bad at recognising and celebrating what we’ve achieved and how far we’ve come. Which is where the National Entrepreneur Awards come in. The fifth annual National Entrepreneur Awards will take place on Friday 8th December at the next Entrepreneurs Circle National Event, when we’ll be recognising and celebrating the success of dozens of business owners with eight prestigious awards, capped off with the presentation of the coveted Entrepreneur of the Year. The award categories cater for all sizes of business – the only question is, which category should you enter?

1. Best New Business

The winner could be an accountant, a solicitor, a social media manager, a printer, an HR company or any other type of ‘business enabler’.

This is your chance to emerge from the shadows and get the recognition you deserve (and just think how much winning this award will help you in the future!).

7. Best Business Video

We’re looking for an entrepreneur who has used video to generate results.

We don’t want wishy-washy corporate crap that can’t be linked to a single sale. Neither is this about number of views on YouTube.
