Who are the faces behind the UK's most exciting, high-potential new companies? Which young entrepreneurs are changing the rules of business?
As part of this year's MADE festival, we are shining the spotlight on the country’s most entrepreneurial young individuals and the startups driving an enterprise-led recovery. From Dragon Peter Jones to Betfair co-founder Ed Wray, we asked a selection of Britain’s most influential business owners and commentators to nominate an entrepreneurial “rising star”, under the age of 30.
We gave you, the British public, the chance to pick the most outstanding individual and Carrie Green, founder of Female Entrepreneur Association was announced as the winner by His Royal Highness The Duke of York on the main stage at MADE: The Entrepreneur Festival on 20th September.
The prize: a one-to-one mentoring session with Lord Bilimoria, founder and Chairman of Cobra Beer. And it was no ordinary business meeting: it took place in the MADE chopper, provided by this year’s charity partner, the Children's Air Ambulance – 3,000ft above Sheffield.
