The 2014 winner of the Stelios Award for Disabled Entrepreneurs was Ben Wolfenden.
Ben is the founder and client services director of Visibilis, offering digital marketing expertise to help businesses improve their online visibility. Ben has cystic fibrosis and insulin-dependent diabetes, and undergoes a gruelling regime of medication and physiotherapy every day.
Growing up, he was given a life expectancy of 30. Refusing to accept this, he is now 31 and looking to expand his business further. The Stelios Award provided funding to develop a new business plan, hire new staff and buy medical equipment to allow Ben to work more comfortably.
