Heatio shortliseted for Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2023

Heatio a Liverpool-based Smart Home Technology company is excited to announce that it’s founders, have been shortlisted for the prestigious 2023 Great British Entrepreneur Awards in the Innovation Entrepreneur of the Year and Sustainability Entrepreneur of the Year categories. This recognition reflects their exceptional entrepreneurial spirit, dedication, and remarkable achievements within their industry.

Now in its 11th year, and previously described as “The Grammys for Entrepreneurship”, The Great British Entrepreneur Awards celebrate the outstanding individuals and businesses that drive innovation, generate employment opportunities, and contribute to the growth of the UK economy. These awards serve as a platform to honour the remarkable stories of entrepreneurs who have overcome challenges, demonstrated resilience, and make significant contributions to their communities.

“We are absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted for such prestigious awards. It is huge recognition of all the late nights and early mornings throughout our careers. Every entrepreneur always has a fantastic support network and we are no different, we couldn’t have achieved what we have so far without fantastic support & guidance, and incredible teams of very talented people,” said Simon Roberts, Managing Director at Heatio.

“Being shortlisted for such coveted awards is incredible and being in the company of previous recipients is quite humbling. More than 2,000 people register a new business every single day in the UK and this is the driving force behind UK economic growth. Out of the 5.93 million businesses in the UK, 7,700 are considered large, the rest being SME and most entrepreneur founded.

Awards like this are vital to recognise the hard work and the risk that entrepreneurs take to start a business and encourage more to do so. 20% fail within the first year, and 60% in 3 years, but with the private sector driving more than £4 trillion of turnover, it’s vital that talented people keep launching and driving these new innovative ventures,” said Thomas Farquhar Commercial Director at Heatio.

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards have become one of the most coveted accolades for entrepreneurs across the UK, celebrating the nation's diverse entrepreneurial landscape. The awards ceremony will take place on November 20th 2023 at London’s Grosvenor House, where industry leaders, innovators, and influencers will gather to celebrate the achievements of the finalists.

Founder of The Great British Entrepreneur Awards Francesca James says “Every year I am blown away with the quantity and quality of applications we receive, and this year is no exception. The Great British Entrepreneur Awards receives thousands of applications annually and the competition is tough. I am truly inspired by the remarkable accomplishments of this year's finalists. Their collective achievements of generating over £2.7 billion in turnover and employing over 33,000 people demonstrate the exceptional impact they have made in their industries and communities. These entrepreneurs exemplify the spirit of innovation, resilience, and growth that drives the entrepreneurial landscape in the UK.”

The Innovation Entrepreneur of the Year category recognises individuals who have demonstrated exceptional creativity, originality, and entrepreneurial spirit in their pursuit of new ideas and innovative solutions.

The Sustainability Entrepreneur of the Year recognises an entrepreneur that is committed to creating quality products or services in a sustainable way, helping to tackle the climate crisis and educate consumers or clients.
