£50,000 Opportunity For Disabled Entrepreneurs
A new award is available to help overcome the barriers disabled people face in business.
EasyJet entrepreneur, Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou and Leonard Cheshire, the UK's largest disability charity, are looking for a disabled entrepreneur who has shown that the barriers placed in the way of disabled people have not stopped them in their quest for success in business.
The winning entrepreneur will be presented with a cheque for £50,000 at the British Chamber of Commerce's prestigious Chamber Awards ceremony to be held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London on Thursday 29th November.
Stelios explained: "I am very passionate about encouraging an enterprising spirit throughout British culture. Helping remove the barriers disabled people face to being in business is an important part of this. That is why I am keen to establish this new award which will give disabled people an opportunity to show the world what they are able to do rather than have them negatively judged by their disability. I look forward to seeing the best of the entries and in due course handing over the cheque to the winner."
The closing date for applications is 5pm on the 14th September 2007.
