UK COMPANY OF THE YEAR AWARDS 2017
THURSDAY 6 JULY , 6PM – 9.30PM
On 6 July, Young Enterprise, the UK’s leading charity that empowers young people to harness their personal and business skills, is hosting an awards ceremony to celebrate the young people changing the face of business. The UK Company of the Year Awards will be the grand finale of 2017’s Young Enterprise Company Programme. Over the course of a year, 20,000 students from around 2,000 teams located across the UK, Channel Islands and Gibraltar have set up and run real businesses, battling it out in local and regional competitions. 14 teams will make it to the final, and the overall UK winner will be crowned on the night.
Young-Enterprise-alumna-turned-BBC-business-presenter Steph McGovern will host the evening, alongside multi-award winning young entrepreneur Ben Towers – recently named Number One on The Times Magazine Superteen Power List. They’ll be joined by guest celebrities and entrepreneurs, including Levi Roots, Amber Atherton and Ben Bailey Smith (aka Doc Brown), taking to the stage to share their personal business stories.
