MINI UK set to sponsor Entrepreneur of the Year Award

MINI UK has been announced as the sponsor for the Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the 2020 Amazon ScaleUp Awards brought to you by Business Leader Magazine.

Few brands can claim to be as iconic and recognisable as MINI and the firm’s UK plants are at the heart and home of the MINI production line. It’s where MINIs are born; crafted, painted, personalised.

In 2019, MINI turned 60 – six decades since Sir Alec Issigonis designed a car that was not only more fuel-efficient, but stylish, positive and joyous.

MINI UK therefore continues to pride itself in supporting entrepreneurship in Britain.

It is for this reason that MINI UK are the perfect fit for this category. The independent panel of judges were looking for a true pioneer, who has founded or acquired a business, with a proven track record of growth and success.

They were also looking for an entry that showcased the person’s entrepreneurial journey, with clear evidence of vision, leadership and risks taken to achieve its business goals.

Amazon ScaleUp Awards founder Andrew Scott comments: “MINI have been an iconic British brand for decades and their entrepreneurial journey is an incredible story of automotive success. Having them associated with our awards will only add to the prestige of being shortlisted for this award. Good luck to all entrants!”

There are still limited sponsorship opportunities available for the Awards, which take place on March 20th 2020 at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane, London. Download the sponsorship pack here.
