The Queen's Award for Enterprise Promotion is one of the Queen's Awards for Enterprise, and is awarded annually to people who play an outstanding role in promoting the growth of business enterprise and/or entrepreneurial skills in other people. It is bestowed by the Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Recipients receive an engraved crystal glass commemorative item, a Grant of Appointment and are invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace.[1]

For example, people who:

  • give up their time - and sometimes provide financial support - to help potential entrepreneurs in education or in the early phases of business development
  • work in education, training or youth work and help provide others with enterprise skills
  • are involved in social enterprise and either achieve business outcomes or help others develop business skills

Entry is by nomination only and individuals cannot put themselves forward.

Thirteen awardees have been from the National Enterprise Network.[2]
