OF THE YEAR 2020
The National Entrepreneur of the Year competition is one of the key highlights of the Peter Jones Foundation’s year and is exclusively open to graduating students from the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy Network. The Finalists, who have each started a business whilst studying at an Academy, are given the opportunity to pitch their business to a panel of innovators, entrepreneurs, and investors – including Peter Jones CBE himself.
