Contact centre leader Cirrus has been recognised as one of the best in the business after being named a finalist in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards out of over 5,300 entrants.
Cirrus is one of the shortlisted business leaders from across the nation for the Scale-Up Entrepreneur of the Year category.
The Great British Entrepreneur Awards, in partnership with Starling Bank, acknowledges and champions the hard work and uplifting stories of business owners across the UK, with an emphasis on their journey and resilience over financial achievements. Notable winners from previous years include Social Chain founder Steven Bartlett, who went on to become the youngest ever investor on BBC’s Dragon’s Den.
Jason Roos, CEO and founder of Cirrus, said: “It’s a real honour to be shortlisted for these prestigious awards. To be recognised as a leading business in the Scale Up space is a real milestone for Cirrus and is testament to the hard work of every individual involved. The awards showcase the plethora of innovative and talented entrepreneurs across the country, and it’s a privilege to be listed as a finalist alongside them.”
The winners will be announced at a Grand Final, held at the Grosvenor Hotel in London on 21st November. This year is the 10th anniversary of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.
Founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, Francesca James, said the quality of this year’s entrants exemplified the strength of entrepreneurship across the UK: “The quality of applications is consistently excellent year on year, but we have been especially blown away by the innovation, drive and determination demonstrated this year. Shortlisting from so many inspiring contenders has been more challenging than ever, with many deserving cases put forward and an ever-growing business community thriving across the country.
“From the pandemic to the ongoing cost of living crisis, business owners haven’t had it easy over the past few years, but it’s a testament to the tenacity and perseverance of these entrepreneurs that they have continued on their path and refused to give in.”
“This year’s finalists should be so proud of what they’ve already achieved both in business and in being shortlisted for an award – we’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the Finals and unveiling the winners!”
Anne Boden MBE, Founder of Starling Bank, headline partner of the Awards, said: “Congratulations to all those businesses who have made the shortlist. It’s great to see the passion, resilience and amazing ingenuity from entrepreneurs across so many categories.”
