It’s been a big year for us at Enabling Enterprise.
One particular highlight that you can’t have missed is that we were short-listed for the inaugural Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Being short-listed was a real endorsement of the work that so many schools and businesses have been working on, in partnership with Enabling Enterprise, over the last four years.
With the final result being chosen by public vote, anyone who follows Enabling Enterprise will have seen our efforts to promote our chances of winning. It was wonderful and humbling to see the response – dozens of tweets, emails of support, and people promoting us on our behalf.
Sadly, in the end we lost to the Brink – a pub without booze that does great work in tackling alcoholism and other addiction in Liverpool. We were hugely encouraged by the 617 votes we received though which was a real boost to the team and it was great to feel so supported.
So, thank you from us for your support. And we promise now to keep working hard to ensure that one day, all students leave school equipped with the enterprise skills, experiences of the world, and aspirations to be successful.
With over 30,000 students on our programmes at the moment, that’s enough for us to be getting on with!
