BQ's National Entrepreneur Festival, featuring the emerging entrepreneur awards, will once again scour the UK to uncover some of the country’s up-and-coming entrepreneurial stars, placing the spotlight on individuals making their mark in the business world. Entrepreneurs from across the land will gather in Newcastle-upon-Tyne for the BQ Entrepreneur Festival on 21 November 2017.
The emerging entrepreneur awards, which are part of the festival, are open to all emerging entrepreneurs who can demonstrate their tenacity, creativity, innovation and determination to scale.
This year's festival will also include a new Outstanding Entrepreneur Award, designed to recognise established entrepreneurs that have achieved exceptional success or have contributed materially to the success of others over a sustained period. All nominees will have demonstrated the kind of entrepreneurial flair and vision that makes them role models and possibly mentors for the emerging entrepreneurs with whom they will have shared their experience.
