Enterprising Britain Awards

The Enterprising Britain Awards are part of the Government’s drive to increase entrepreneurial activity in the UK. They are managed by Investment in Young People on behalf of the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS). This competition will decide who gets the title of "Most Enterprising Place in Britain" along with identifying the UK entries to the European Enterprise Promotion Awards.

The 2016 Enterprising Britain Awards have now closed. Please see the News section for the shortlist.

The announcement of the winners of the Enterprising Britain Awards 2016 has been slightly delayed due to the reorganisation of the Ministerial Teams within the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills. We do not anticipate that we will be in a position to make any announcements for at least another 2 to 3 weeks.
