The programme celebrates entrepreneurial success in the UK, recognises the impact entrepreneurs are making on our society and economy and provides a platform for them to build connections with people outside of their industry. LGT Vestra is delighted to support the programme as UK headline sponsor for the second year. As an entrepreneurial firm, LGT Vestra understands the challenges and risks involved in starting a new business and is therefore ideally placed to offer advice and support throughout the lifecycle of entrepreneurs’ businesses.
David Scott, Founder and Chairman of LGT Vestra said “Many of us at LGT Vestra are entrepreneurs and we are delighted to share our experiences, insights and passion. Meeting the entrepreneurs on this programme has been inspirational and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate their achievements through our sponsorship of EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2018.”
Joanna Santinon, UK Entrepreneur Of The Year Programme Leader said “We are pleased to welcome LGT Vestra as our headline sponsor for the third year running. As an entrepreneurial firm they too recognise the contribution of fast-growth business leaders to the UK economy."
“EY Entrepreneur Of The Year celebrates, supports, and connects entrepreneurs in the UK, those who are making a positive and lasting impact on their society and the economy. The longevity of the programme, which celebrates its 20th Anniversary this year, is testament to the vibrancy of UK entrepreneurialism today."
In the UK, the programme runs in four regions - London & South, Midlands, North and Scotland – culminating in a national award event in November 2018 to announce the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2018 UK overall winner. The winner will then go on to compete for the prestigious title of World Entrepreneur Of The Year in June 2019.
