Jarjue joins an esteemed panel that includes Dragon’s Den investor Touker Suleyman; Irene Graham OBE, the CEO of the ScaleUp Institute; Caprice Bourret, the Founder of By Caprice; and investor and author Alpesh Patel OBE.

Brought to you by Business Leader, the Scale-Up Awards celebrate high-growth companies and the entrepreneurs that run them. Entries to the 15 award categories are open until the 26th of April, after which the esteemed panel of judges will carefully scrutinise every award entry to determine the finalists in each award category.

Andrew Scott, Founder of the Scale-Up Awards, comments: “I’m delighted to add Joanna Jarjue to the esteemed judging panel at this year’s Scale-Up Awards. Her expertise and experience will be invaluable when it comes to determining who will be worthy of taking home the prizes at this year’s event.”
