June 2017: Imam Hoque, COO, Quantexa has won the Evergreen Entrepreneur Award at the 7th Annual Enterprise Awards.
The Enterprise Awards celebrate the UK’s finest entrepreneurs in 13 categories. They uniquely focus on the achievements of founders, with applicants judged on a number of factors including vision, growth, innovation, funding, use of capital, use of resources, strategy, execution, ambition and determination to succeed.
The awards were presented during a gala banquet held on Wednesday 14th June at The Dorchester, during London Technology Week. Proceeds from the event will be donated to Sherry Coutu’s Founders4Schools charity, which helps schools find inspiring business leaders to speak to children in the classroom.
John O’Connell, Chairman of the Scaleup Group and founder of the Enterprise Awards, said: “Entrepreneurship is key to the success of the UK economy, and we continue to be encouraged and impressed by the standard of leaders in this country through the Enterprise Awards.”
“The winners of this year’s Enterprise Awards are at the forefront of their fields. They exemplify the mission of the awards to recognise leaders at every stage in their careers that have or will make a significant impact on their industry. This year was record breaking for us in terms of applications which is indicative of the number of quality innovative founders we have here in the UK. Two-thirds of this year’s Enterprise Awards entrants are growing at over 50% per annum; five of those shortlisted are growing at 100% per annum and over £300 million growth capital has been raised from institutions. I’m already excited to see next year’s crop.”
Imam Hoque, COO of Quantexa commented on the award “I continue to be impressed with the calibre of innovation coming out of the UK. Awards such as these are critical in recognising and encouraging the talent which is central to making start-ups flourish. I am delighted to be part of this and to make my contribution.”
