Entrepreneurs Unlocked announced as Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2022 finalist

Entrepreneurs Unlocked has been recognised as one of the best in the business after being named as a finalist in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, in the Entrepreneur for Good category.

David Morgan, founder of Entrepreneurs Unlocked, is one of the shortlisted business leaders from across the nation to have been selected out of over 5,300 entrants – the most the awards has ever had.

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards acknowledges and champions the hard work and uplifting stories of business owners across the UK, with an emphasis on their journey and resilience over financial achievements.

Twelve awards will be given out per region for categories including Disruptor of the Year, Entrepreneur for Good Award, and the Great British Entrepreneur of the Year. Notable winners from previous years include Social Chain founder Steven Bartlett, who went on to become the youngest ever investor on BBC’s Dragon’s Den.

Entrepreneurs Unlocked founder, David Morgan, said: “I am delighted to be a finalist in this year’s Great British Entrepreneur Awards, in the Entrepreneur for Good category. As a social enterprise, helping some of the most vulnerable in our community to forge a pathway in self-employment is fulfilling, and I am so pleased that my work has been recognised by the judges. I would like to wish all my fellow finalists the best of luck and I’m looking forward to the award ceremony in November!”

The winners will be announced at a Grand Final, held at the Grosvenor Hotel in London on 21st November.

This year is the 10th anniversary of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards. The alumni have collectively generated over £30 billion in revenue and employed more than 450,000 people.

Founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, Francesca James, said the quality of this year’s entrants exemplified the strength of entrepreneurship across the UK: “The quality of applications is consistently excellent year on year, but we have been especially blown away by the innovation, drive and determination demonstrated this year. Shortlisting from so many inspiring contenders has been more challenging than ever, with many deserving cases put forward and an ever-growing business community thriving across the country.

“From the pandemic to the ongoing cost of living crisis, business owners haven’t had it easy over the past few years, but it’s a testament to the tenacity and perseverance of these entrepreneurs that they have continued on their path and refused to give in.

“This year’s finalists should be so proud of what they’ve already achieved both in business and in being shortlisted for an award – we’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the Finals and unveiling the winners!”
