Runners Up At The National Business Awards

November 16, 2016 by Minerva Tutors,

Back in August, we announced that Minerva Tutors director Hugh Viney had been shortlisted for the Duke of York New Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the National Business Awards. After a lengthy judging process, the awards ceremony was held last night at the Grosvenor House Hotel and the team went down to lend their support.

Competition in Hugh’s category was fierce, with eight brilliant finalists competing for the top prize. In the end, the award went to Fourex, a foreign exchange vending machine designed by a startup based in Cambridge. Along with the other finalists in his category, Hugh came in as a well-deserved runner-up.

A highlight of the evening was William Hague speaking on a variety of topics that embraced the theme of this year’s awards – ‘the Best of British’ and was rounded off with music and dancing which went on into the early hours.
