Uniquely focused on the founder rather than the businesses themselves, the Enterprise Awards boasted previous winners that have achieved prominence on both private and public markets. The judging panel is looking for examples of vision, growth, innovation, funding, use of capital, use of resources, strategy, execution, ambition and determination to succeed.

The Enterprise Awards Alumni includes some of the most successful tech businesses in the UK, such as the leaders of WiseQuantexaDarktraceTPXimpact (formerly Panoply) and ActiveOps.

Entries for the 2024 Awards are now open until the 31st of March 2024.
