It has just been announced that founder of Motionspot, Ed Warner, has been shortlisted for the 2017 NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards in the Entrepreneur for Good of the Year award.
Ed beat off some tough competition in order to make the London regional shortlist, with over 1000 businesses entering the awards nationally across the wide range of categories.
Now in its fifth year, the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards has celebrated some amazing entrepreneurs over the years, many of whom are now household names. Past winners include David Buttress of Just Eat, Julie Deane of The Cambridge Satchel Company, James Watt of BrewDog and Alexander Solomou of TheLADBible Group.
Ed said “I am delighted to have been shortlisted for this award alongside other such worthy businesses. Motionspot was inspired after my good friend James Taylor was paralysed in a diving accident in 2005. He returned home to find his adapted flat looking more like a clinical care home, full of white plastic grab rails, shower seats, vinyl flooring and other products that were so synonymous with ageing and disability. At Motionspot we provide an alternative by designing and supplying beautiful washrooms and bathrooms to deliver the necessary access for people without compromising on design.”
Creator of the Awards, Francesca James, said: “We have been inundated with some incredible entries this year, and all shortlisted applicants should be extremely proud of themselves! This year has seen a record number of entrants and we’ve been absolutely blown away by the strength and diversity of applications.”
“We cannot wait to celebrate entrepreneurship across Great Britain with them, and put a spotlight on the incredible talent within the British entrepreneur ecosystem.”
Gordon Merrylees, Head of Entrepreneurship at NatWest said: "I want to thank all of the entrepreneurs who entered this year and congratulate those who have been shortlisted, I look forward to seeing them at the regional finals.”
“It is clear that entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well and NatWest is thrilled to be able to support these awards to celebrate success with the businesses that are the lifeblood of the UK Economy as they start, scale and succeed.”
The NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards will celebrate entrepreneurship across a number of categories at 5 gala finals across the UK, including; Cardiff, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Manchester & London.
