Next generation of champions of entrepreneurship recognised in the Smith & Williamson Power 100

From start-ups to scale-ups, the Smith & Williamson Power 100 has been designed to celebrate those who help shape policy, champion, mentor, support and promote entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship across the country.

While 2016 saw names like Sir Richard Branson, Baroness Karren Brady CBE and Baroness Martha Lane-Fox recognised for their contribution to championing the entrepreneurial cause, 2017 sees the introduction of an entirely new cohort, who have been nominated by their peers.

The Smith & Williamson Power 100 celebrates those who use their experience or expertise to provide vital support to help inspire, mentor, connect and professionalise the UK’s up-and-coming businesses. Without these types of individuals, many brands that are household names today would simply not exist – they are critical to the wellbeing of the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

The Smith & Williamson Power 100 is being released on Fresh Business Thinking over a period of four weeks, culminating in a celebratory event at the Smith & Williamson’s offices on 7 March. To join us for this evening of celebration, register your interest here.
