The Heropreneurs Awards, established in 2018 to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of the military community in business, has been brought online for 2021!
Entries for the Heropreneurs Virtual Awards are open from now until 5pm on Friday 11 June. Offering significant, even life-changing, opportunities for the military community, including 100% bursaries for a Warwick Business School MBA or Executive Diploma; free Gold Membership, worth £10,000, for a leading veterans’ job platform; and a £20,000 grant from the Veterans’ Foundation, the Heropreneurs Awards represent opportunities for all within the military community, from start-up ventures, military spouses, and charities, through to international businesses that have a strong veteran supporting mentality.
Organisations supporting the awards in 2021 include Goldman Sachs, Warwick Business School, Amazon Web Services, TechVets, JobOppO, Brigantes Consulting, Atkins Global, BCA, and the Veterans’ Foundation. All of whom have offered exceptional prizes for the winners of their individual award categories.
Gen Sir John McColl KCB, CBE, DSO, KSt Chairman of the Judges for the Heropreneurs Virtual Awards said:
“The Heropreneurs Awards highlight the extraordinary qualities that ex-servicemen and women bring to the world of business in the UK. Entrepreneurs are a distinctive breed requiring, amongst other characteristics; initiative, determination, the ability to solve problems of all kinds and resilience. These are qualities that are imbued in those who serve and they are demonstrated each year in the highly competitive Heropreneurs Awards. Veterans are a significant benefit to the UK and these awards help the country to recognize that tremendous contribution. It is a privilege to chair the judging panel again this year and I would urge all ex-service entrepreneurs to get involved and consider nominating themselves.”
Nominations can be self-driven or businesses/individuals can be nominated by someone that feels they deserve recognition. 2021 has seen the introduction of two new awards categories this year, ‘Product of the Year’, sponsored by Brigantes, and ‘Sustainable Business of the Year’, sponsored by Atkins Global. All entries will be eligible to be considered for the discretionary ‘Heropreneur of the Year’ category, an accolade that will be awarded to the most inspirational entry across the entire pool of category applicants and nominees.
