E2E 100 is a significant initiative designed to showcase the very best British companies. They feature companies that are excelling, experiencing consistent growth and presenting disruptive business strategies. They are creating an impact not just in their own sector, but also on a nationwide and in some cases a global scale.
The Independent, the UK’s largest quality, digital news brand with over 22.3m monthly
unique users, who are actively interested in business and finance, is a fitting media partner to help us shine a spotlight on innovators and changemakers across the UK. We will be highlighting their ideas and drive for positive change, but also take this opportunity to get under the skin of today’s business challenges.
E2E 100 shines a spotlight on innovators and changemakers across the UK, highlighting their ideas and their drive for positive change. It provides us an opportunity to get under the skin of today’s business challenges.
Six E2E 100 will be revealed in 2023, focusing on distinct, but equally important, aspects of UK business, celebrating the companies and individuals making the biggest impacts in each category.
Entrepreneurs who have changed the business world, embraced innovation and built a thriving enterprise will be featured alongside each. We hope that this will inspire, educate and inform the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Each table features a different vertical and as our partner, The Independent publishes them, you’ll find profiles of selected entrepreneurs featured to explore their vision and how they’ve tackled the challenges along the way.
