Companies can enter for the opportunity to win in one of 18 categories. As well as global recognition, other benefits include networking and new business opportunities, increased brand exposure and inclusion in an influential business community.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards, said: “The European Business Awards recognises the drivers, innovators and game changers: the successful businesses that look beyond their own desks and office blocks to make a difference to the world. If that is you then enter today.”
He continued: “The Awards exist to develop a stronger, more successful and more ethical business community in Europe because we believe that businesses play a key role in tackling major global issues such as unemployment, climate change and widespread poverty.”
The European Business Awards is one of the world’s largest and most prestigious independent cross border, cross sector business competitions. It analysed over 111,000 companies from 34 countries in last year’s competition alone.
This year the Awards is also pleased to announce award winning private equity firm, Inflexion, as the new sponsor for its Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
Andrew Priest, a Partner at Inflexion said: “We are honoured to sponsor The European Entrepreneur of the Year Award, which recognises the vision, talent and tenacity of Europe’s vibrant community of entrepreneurs.”

Adrian Tripp said: “We understand the power of networking and bring together the movers and shakers from multiple sectors all under the same roof.”
This year the competition has a three-stage process. Following entry, the Awards will publish its “Ones to Watch” list of the most successful, innovative and ethical businesses from each European country. After further judging, 18 National Winners in each country will be announced in September (one National Winner for each category), and then in December 2019 the final 18 European Winners will be announced at a high profile two day Business Summit and Awards Gala Dinner, bringing together over 700 of the most successful and influential businesses in Europe.
