The Award recognises entrepreneurs and businesses who have demonstrated an impact through digital empowerment and innovative collaboration.

Furqan Alamgir, CEO and Co-founder at Connexin said: 

“We are heavily focused on innovation here at Connexin and are delighted to be recognised as a leader in smart tech innovation by the expert panel at the Barclays Entrepreneur Awards.

What are the Barclays Entrepreneur Awards? 

The Barclays Entrepreneur Awards recognise the importance of the UK’s entrepreneurial spirit and showcase founders and businesses from across the country who — in the midst of the global pandemic — have gone from bedroom to (virtual) boardroom, from homemade to self-made, and have succeeded in bringing together their creativity, passion, and innovation.  And, in turn, have helped to stimulate economic recovery and drive social change.

Katherine Morgan, Head of High Growth & Entrepreneurs at Barclays, said: 

“The awards are a celebration of the exceptional innovation and leadership entrepreneurs show, helping to create social change and growth. This is our opportunity to celebrate some of the UK’s most successful homegrown ventures and the founders behind them, and we would like to congratulate Connexin on their success.”

Selection of awards finalists

The Barclays Entrepreneur Awards will be held on Thursday October 21, 2021. Attendees will include winning entrepreneurs, industry experts, and investors from across the UK. A national judging panel formed of key industry leaders and influencers will select the overall winner.
