SJL business awards help UK entrepreneurs succeed with grants and mentoring | City & Business | Finance


Winners will probably be awarded a grant of £2,000 or more, one 12 months’s free mentoring and free publicity to extend their industrial standing. All those aged 18 and over can apply, with finalists pitching to judges on Wednesday, November 22 at an event within the House of Commons.

The inspiration currently raises money for ethical start-up businesses and Acorns Children’s Hospices Trust.

Broker and dedicated apprenticeships supporter SJL Insurance Services, whose owner and chief executive is Simon Lancaster, is the inspiration’s most important sponsor.

To enter email foundation@sjlins.co.uk for an application pack. The shape has eight questions and every entrant should include a three-minute video of themselves saying what their business does, and the way they’d spend the grant.  Closing date for entries is 12pm noon on Wednesday, October 12, 2022.

Among the many judges are Simon Lancaster, Kerry Hopkins, owner of broadcast public relations agency the Broadcast Academy and Annabel Kaye, founding father of legal advice company KoffeeKlatch. Worcester MP Robin Walker will host the morning reception.

Simon Lancaster commented: “The awards help our foundation achieve our purpose of paying it forward to assist other entrepreneurs. We’re entering a troublesome time for businesses, what with the rise of inflation, higher taxes and increased costs. 

“But that doesn’t mean a business can’t succeed right away which is what mentoring from SJL’s senior staff and my associates goals to assist the winners achieve.”

All finalists will travel to the House of Commons ready for a 07:15am arrival and the event finishes at 10am. SJL Foundation
