In working with exciting high growth innovative and entrepreneurial businesses, across our region, Managing Director Peter Fennell, who presented the award said ‘’At Augere we get a real buzz seeing good ideas and hard work translate into valuable business outcomes. Whether businesses are new start-ups with exciting ambitions, established businesses scaling up and growing fast through new products, channels or markets, or businesses overcoming significant operational challenges, we get really inspired seeing entrepreneurial leadership in action delivering successful outcomes.

Peter added “Being a successful entrepreneur means much more than bringing new business ideas to the table, it is much more about the calculated risks, determination and resilience required to drive out valuable outcomes against the odds, given the challenges presented by COVID-19 these attributes have been essential to sustain success let alone drive profitable growth.”

Augere’s Digital Marketing Lead – Yasmin added ‘’ ’We enjoyed getting together in person at the GMCC Awards event. It was a great opportunity to network and meet some exciting start-ups with growth ambitions but also established businesses who are scaling up and growing fast through new products, channels and markets too! Congratulations to all the award winners and particularly to razorblue who won the Entrepreneurial Success Award which we were proud to be sponsoring.

She further adds ‘’Being a people person it was my first face to face event (since the end of 2019) wow.. and it would simply not have been possible without the huge effort from Greater Manchester Chamber, UK team who put on a fabulous evening! So thank you all! It was an evening to celebrate and showcase business achievements together! I look forward to the upcoming GMCC events.
