The most inventive event of the year!


Our National Entrepreneur Festival, powered by Atom bank and featuring the emerging entrepreneur awards, will once again scour the UK to uncover some of the country’s up-and-coming entrepreneurial stars, placing the spotlight on individuals making their mark in the business world.

Entrepreneurs from across the land are gathering in the heartland of the industrial revolution, Newcastle upon Tyne, the birthplace of Stephenson’s ‘Rocket’ for the BQ Entrepreneur Festival, powered by Atom bank, at the Boiler Shop on 21st November 2017.

The emerging entrepreneur awards, which are part of the festival, are open to all emerging entrepreneurs who can demonstrate their tenacity, creativity, innovation and determination to scale. Sounds familiar? Recognise yourself or colleagues? Then submit a nomination or buy tickets today. From Glasgow to Guildford we want to celebrate entrepreneurship across the UK.

Craig Iley, Managing Director of Business Banking at Atom bank, said: “This is about entrepreneurs receiving the support and recognition they deserve for challenging norms, taking risks and ultimately powering our economy as they develop into SMEs. This year’s festival will be truly innovative, reflecting and celebrating entrepreneurial spirit.”

Our stellar line up of featured BQ entrepreneurs will descend on Newcastle to celebrate entrepreneurship and forge new relationships in business.

You are part of the ‘entrepreneurial revolution’, so get involved, enter the awards, or get your tickets to socialise and recognise that you’re in great company. Join the party at #BQFest17.
