Representing at the East of England StartUp Awards

We’re thrilled to announce that Alex, founder of Inspire 2 Ignite CIC, has been invited to be a judge at this year’s East of England StartUp Awards, taking place on June 8th. The awards celebrate the success and achievements of innovative start-up businesses across the East of England.

As a successful social entrepreneur and business leader, Alex is excited to be a part of this year’s awards ceremony, which will recognise the most promising start-ups and entrepreneurs in the region. Alex will be one of the judges who will select the winners from among the shortlisted finalists, and will be convening with the other judges to make the final decision.

Congratulations to all the finalists who were shortlisted for the StartUp Awards. Can't wait to meet them in the build-up to selecting our winners and convening with the appropriate level of energy at the awards ceremony.

Lewis for 'Young Entrepreneur' of the year

Among the shortlisted finalists is our very own Igniter, Lewis Newark (pictured below second from left on the panel of Curious Entrepreneurs at our Peterborough launch event). Lewis has built his business from the ground up, and his hard work and dedication have earned him a place on the shortlist for the Young Entrepreneur award. We’re incredibly proud of Lewis and can’t wait to be there with him on the night.

Recognising achievements

The StartUp Awards is a collaboration between the founders of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards – an established national programme receiving over 5,000 applications annually – and the Wales Start-Up Awards, the only national and regional awards currently celebrating new businesses in the UK.

The StartUp Awards recognises the achievements of those amazing individuals who have had a great idea, spotted the opportunity and taken the risks to launch a new product or service.

Already established and thriving in Wales, the StartUp Awards is now taking the passion and drive to celebrate new business and extending across the whole of the United Kingdom.

We wish all the finalists the best of luck and can’t wait to see who comes out on top. Follow us on social media to stay up-to-date with the latest news from Inspire 2 Ignite and the East of England Start Up Awards.
