Entrepreneurial Scotland and STV launch campaign to celebrate Scottish entrepreneurship

July 6, 2018

STV and Entrepreneurial Scotland have joined forces to launch Summit – an exciting new initiative celebrating Scottish entrepreneurial innovation and achievement.

Held over the course of the next five months and culminating in a prestigious awards event, Summit will build on the success of Entrepreneurial Scotland’s highly regarded former national awards programme, established 22 years ago. STV and Entrepreneurial Scotland are calling on innovators, visionaries and game-changers – no matter what stage they are at in their journey – to come forward and take part.

The Summit – Celebrating Scottish Entrepreneurship campaign will culminate in November, when STV and Entrepreneurial Scotland will recognise Scotland’s outstanding entrepreneurs with seven nominated awards.

Entries are welcomed from anyone showing an entrepreneurial mindset to grow a business or organisation, address a challenge or seize an opportunity. Nominate yourself, your colleagues, customers or suppliers – anyone you believe is truly entrepreneurially-minded. Entries should be submitted by 16th August 2018.

The seven categories are:

  1. Entrepreneur of the Year
  2. Intrapreneur of the Year
  3. Rising Star of the Year
  4. Scale Up Entrepreneur of the Year
  5. Social Entrepreneur of the Year
  6. Academic to Entrepreneur
