CEO, Jacyn Heavens shortlisted for Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2016

Epos Now CEO Jacyn Heavens has been shortlisted for the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2016. The award is regarded as the benchmark for entrepreneurial success in the UK celebrating the contributions and innovations of British entrepreneurs and their impact on the economy.

Celebrating entrepreneurs who embody a spirit of disruption, innovation and enterprise, the Awards recognise business leaders from multiple industries across the 20 awards categories. Jacyn has been named a finalist in the Retail Entrepreneur category for founding Epos Now, responsible for improving the profitability of 30,000 SMEs across 109 different countries.

Having whittled the hundreds of entries down for each category, Nick James, Founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “This year we have yet again enjoyed an increase in the amount of entries for the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, and every single category is fiercely contested. There is no doubt that Entrepreneurialism is alive and well in the UK despite any uncertainty over Brexit.”

"Having encountered problems maintaining profitability when running my bar, I was frustrated by the lack of quality EPOS systems on the market for SME businesses. That's when I decided to develop my own. It's hard to believe how Epos Now has grown in just 5 short years! It's such an honor to be shortlisted for retail entrepreneur of the year! I intend to keep innovating our products and pushing for excellence, so Epos Now can continue to deliver world-class products and services to our expanding customer base." Jacy Heavens CEO

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards will culminate at the Gala Final, taking place on Tuesday 22 November in the Ballrooms of the prestigious, Lancaster London Hotel. The awards are considered an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful stories British entrepreneurs have, and helping them on their journey to success.

Gordon Merrylees, Head of Entrepreneurship for NatWest, said “Entrepreneurs are the wealth creators and the lifeblood of the UK economy. It’s incredibly important that we support them, throughout their journey with access to finance and networks; relevant mentors, general business advice and knowledge, all vital ingredients whether they are start up's, early stage or high growth ventures. The standard of this year's awards’ finalists shows just how much talent there is to support in the UK.”
