The Heropreneurs Awards, established in 2018 to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of the military community in business, have been brought online for 2021.

The awards are a chance to shine for all within the military community, from start-up ventures, military spouses and charities to international businesses.

A total of nine awards will be made this year, including two new awards – ‘Product of the Year’ and ‘Sustainable Business of the Year’. All entries will also be considered for ‘Heropreneur of the Year’.

Prizes include 100 per cent bursaries for a Warwick Business School MBA or Executive Diploma; free gold membership, worth £10,000, for a veterans’ job platform; and a £20,000 grant from the Veterans’ Foundation.

Gen Sir John McColl KCB, CBE, DSO, KSt, chairman of the judges, said: “Entrepreneurs are a distinctive breed requiring initiative, determination, the ability to solve problems of all kinds and resilience. These are qualities that are imbued in those who serve. I would urge all ex-service entrepreneurs to get involved and consider nominating themselves.”

 Nominations are open until 11 June. Visit to see full details of each award category and to submit your entry. Winners will be announced from August.
