The Barclays Entrepreneur Awards recognise the importance of the UK’s entrepreneurial spirit and showcase founders and their businesses drawn from across the country, who amid the 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 activate and stimulate the 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 home-grown ventures and the founders behind them and we would like to congratulate Connexin on their success.”

 

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

The Barclays Entrepreneur Awards recently won the ICE Awards 2021 Most Disruptive Event of the Year Award.
