The Business School at UCB has been named as education partner for the West Midlands regional Great British Entrepreneur Awards, organised by major retail and commercial bank NatWest.

Now in its sixth year, the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards acknowledges and celebrates the hard work and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs and businesses in the United Kingdom.

Far more than just an awards ceremony, the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards are on a mission to become an ecosystem of incredible business minds and a means of making purposeful, beneficial connections between companies and individuals.

With its strong entrepreneurial ethos, emphasis on real-life work skills and reputation for high- quality training, UCB’s Business School proved the perfect choice of education partner for the West Midlands branch of the Awards.

“The Business School at UCB is very passionate about supporting entrepreneurship, as evidenced through our dynamic, cutting edge curriculum,” said Dean of The Business School Dilshad Sheikh.

“We strongly believe that by developing the values of enterprise within the minds and skillsets of our students, the future leaders of tomorrow, that the UK as a whole will be better prepared to deliver in the ever-more competitive world of international commerce.

“We are privileged to be partnering with NatWest GBEA, as it demonstrates both our commitment and our dedication to the development of our learners, and to entrepreneurship as a guiding principle.”

Francesca James, creator of the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards, believes too that it is vital British entrepreneurs are championed. She explained: “Entrepreneurs inject competition into markets, create jobs and spur innovation. In many cases, their businesses change the ways in which we live and work. These awards are different because they celebrate the story behind these people – true entrepreneurs are as much about their story as they are about their balance sheet.”
