The Entrepreneur Wales Awards kicked up a storm last Thursday night at the Millennium Stadium, as attendees celebrated the hard work and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs and businesses across Wales.
A mix of start-ups, business people and established company’s celebrated alongside Welsh Rugby royalty over dinner and drinks during the awards ceremony. Former Welsh rugby captain Gareth Thomas rightfully spoke about leadership, noting: “a great leader thinks of others first and himself last”.
“It was a cracking night; the atmosphere was fantastic. You could really feel the energy in the room as we celebrated entrepreneurship throughout Wales. It’s hard work; as an entrepreneur you’re working 24/7 so to see recognition for that and have the chance to enjoy an evening celebrating your passion is truly amazing. Wales is alive and kicking in business and full of opportunity”
Over 300 companies entered in categories which included Technology, Social enterprise, Manufacturing and both the Service and Creative industries.
