We are delighted to announce that our Founder and Group CEO, Scott Smyth, has been confirmed as a regional finalist for EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ UK for 2022.
The innovation, leadership and positive societal contribution made by entrepreneurs plays an important role in inspiring the next generation of businesses leaders, today and tomorrow.
The Entrepreneur Of The Year™ UK programme continues to celebrate these contributions, recognising innovators from across the country, creating a community of unstoppable entrepreneurs that are positively impacting people and their communities, and leaving a lasting business legacy.
This year, 104 entrepreneurs across Scotland, North, Midlands and South West, and London and South East, have been shortlisted as regional finalists. These individuals come from a vast array of sectors – from technology to healthcare and many more in between.
These finalists will be seeking to emulate the success of Matthew Scullion, 2021’s Entrepreneur Of The Year™ UK and CEO of Manchester-based Matillion, a firm which created 180 jobs and achieved unicorn status last year. In June, Matthew will go on to represent the UK at EY’s World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2022 in Monaco.
Four regional judging panels will convene on 25-26 May, 2022, with national finalists set to be announced in September before moving onto national judging days in October. The overall winner will be revealed in November 2022.
