The awards, which are being sponsored by Business Wales are being produced by the organisers of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards and the publishers of Fresh Business Thinking and have welcomes over 230 applications from businesses and entrepreneurs across Wales.
The short-listed entries are now being considered by an all star line up of Welsh entrepreneurial minds including Hayley Parsons, founder and former CEO of Go Compare and Jonathan Davies, editor of Fresh Business Thinking.
The Awards Ceremony itself, which is being held at the National Museum on November 12th will be a night to remember, with VIPs from the world of business and entrepreneurship gathering to celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit in Wales.
Cariann Jones, director of Wize Virtual Admin (who was recently shortlisted as ‘Young Entrepeneur of the Year’ at the South Wales Business Awards) said:
“It’s an honour to be recognised at the Entrepreneur Wales Awards and be shortlisted alongside the other brilliant businesses in Wales. Immensely proud to be a part of such a great and growing sector!”

Founder of The uTutor Group, Kris Harris, said:
“Being nominated for the Entrepreneur Wales award is a great achievement and milestone in my entrepreneurial career. Being surrounded by like minded people on a daily basis has allowed me to gain confidence and grow my business in Wales.”
“For ICE members, Wize and uTutor Group, to be recognised by the awards panel is a great endorsement of their hard work building their businesses to their current level. As a judge of the awards, I am aware of just how difficult the team found it to come up with the shortlist from an incredible number of applications, and to be ranked alongside some of the other finalists is reward enough, but I bet they will be driven to win every award they are nominated for.”
