Entrepreneurs Unlocked Shortlisted For Small Award

Now in its seventh year, The Small Awards is a nationwide search for the smallest and greatest firms in the UK, across all sectors. It is organised annually by Small Business Britain, which champions, inspires and accelerates the nation’s 5.5 million small firms.

Entrepreneurs Unlocked has been chosen as one of just eight finalists for the Mission Possible Award for the best social enterprise, an award that recognises businesses that are driven by their mission over and above financial performance.

Entrepreneurs Unlocked Director, David Morgan said: “I am delighted that Entrepreneurs Unlocked has been shortlisted for a Mission Possible Award. Our vision, working with people both in prison and upon release, is to develop an integrated network of support, ensuring that self-employment can be a first choice and not a last resort. I want to extend my congratulations to the other finalists, and I want to wish everyone the best of luck for May!”

With eleven different categories, the Small Awards celebrate the dynamism and resilience of the UK’s small business sector, across everything from sustainability heroes to digital stars, to long-standing family businesses.

“The Small Awards is all about celebrating the incredible small business owners who are at the heart of the economy and communities,” said Michelle Ovens CBE, Founder of Small Business Britain “They are an opportunity to recognise and applaud the passion and tenacity of the nation’s small firms, particularly during such turbulent times. David Morgan should be incredibly proud of being shortlisted for this award and we can’t wait to celebrate with him in May.”

Judged by a panel of industry experts, the winners of all categories, along with the overall winner of Small Business of the Year, will be announced at a glittering awards night in London on 18 May 2023.

This event follows the incredible return of the in-person Small Awards ceremony last year, which had been held online during the pandemic. The ceremony will this year be held at St Mary’s church in London, with plans underway for a night of entertainment, inspiration and celebration for UK’s greatest small businesses.
