Intuit is dedicated to fueling the entrepreneurial spirit of startups and small businesses in the UK, so we’re thrilled to be a sponsor of this year’s Great British Entrepreneur Awards, the benchmark for entrepreneurial success in Britain.
The awards, in their third year, recognise hot startups such as previous winners Cambridge Satchel Company, Naked Wines and BrewDog among others. These companies are great examples of the importance entrepreneurs play in contributing to society through developing innovative offerings, creating jobs and becoming driving-forces behind economic growth.
“Intuit was once a startup, with Scott Cook, our founder developing the company at his kitchen table over 30 years ago,” said Rich Preece, UK VP & Managing Director at Intuit UK. “I’m thrilled to be a judge and by sponsoring these awards we hope to honour and support the next generation of entrepreneurs who play an integral role in our economy.”
Simon Burton, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “We’re delighted that Intuit is on-board as a sponsor for this year’s Great British Entrepreneur Awards. Entrepreneurs nationwide deserve to be recognised for their contributions, successes and originality and we are looking forward to seeing which entrepreneurial stories are told over the next few months.”
