Stelios Award for Disabled Entrepreneurs in the UK

This unique and prestigious award is sponsored by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the renowned entrepreneur best known for founding easyJet.

The creation of the award was motivated by Stelios’ goal of not only supporting disabled entrepreneurs, but also raising awareness of the skills and inventiveness of those with disabilities.

Congratulations to James King of Oliver James Garden Rooms, who won 2013's £50,000 Stelios Award for Disabled Entrepreneurs! Read about James's success story, and about the previous years' winners
