Hailed as the benchmark for entrepreneurial success in the UK, the Great British Entrepreneur Awards celebrate inspiring entrepreneurs across a range of categories.

Commenting on the 2014 submissions, Founder of the awards Simon Burton, states: “The entries to the Great British Entrepreneur Awards this year are inspiring and humbling. We passionately promote the idea that entrepreneurs’ stories are as telling as their balance sheets and that entrepreneurs should be acknowledged and recognised.
“The task for the judges this year will be incredibly hard. Entrepreneurship is alive, thriving and blossoming in the UK.”
Speaking about the nomination, Egress CEO Tony Pepper explains: “Neil and I are honoured to be named as nominees for ‘Digital Entrepreneur of the Year’ at the 2014 Great British Entrepreneur Awards. We work closely with our clients and key figures in the information security market in order to respond to genuine business need, and have developed our market-leading encryption services platform, Egress Switch, accordingly. Today’s announcement endorses this approach and demonstrates our commitment to innovative, essential technology.”
Egress COO Neil Larkins also commented: “Having jointly won ‘Developing Entrepreneur of the Year’ at the WCIT Enterprise Awards in June, we are obviously delighted with this further recognition as nominees for the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.
