£150k’s worth of prize money and professional services to be won

Steve Morgan is today launching The Morgan Foundation’s 2008 Entrepreneur Awards with over £150,000 of cash prizes and services on offer to the winners.

Following the huge success of last year’s inaugural awards, businesses and entrepreneurs from Merseyside, West Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales once again have the opportunity to compete across five categories for a potentially major boost to their enterprise.

Designed to encourage a whole new generation of entrepreneurial role models, the return of the awards for 2008 were today being marked at a launch at Barclays in Liverpool.

With Steve now chairman of Wolverhampton Wanderers, and the Morgan Foundation providing substantial annual support to the club’s Wolves Aid charity, the initiative has this year been extended to include the Wolverhampton area.

With main sponsorship provided by Barclays Commercial, there are dual launches to this year’s award scheme, with today’s event following a similar one held at Molineux Stadium yesterday.

Having launched his business life by using a £5,000 loan from his father to help found one of the UK’s most successful house builders in Redrow, before moving on to a variety of property and leisure based businesses,  Steve is now hoping to help similarly ambitious entrepreneurs and young businesses achieve their potential.

Applications for the various categories must be submitted by September 12 with a panel of distinguished judges then selecting the finalists. For more details, and to download an application form, visit: www.mf-awards.co.uk

Those individuals or companies short-listed will then be assessed and a short film made of their businesses to be screened at the Awards Ceremony at Carden Park Hotel on November 20.

The final judging panel for the awards will include Steve himself.
