LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With less than a week to go until the TradeNext British Indian Awards, the organisers have announced the nominations shortlist and the list highlights the considerable entrepreneurial spirit and diversity within Britain’s Indian community.
The British Indian Awards recognise people of Indian heritage who have successfully established businesses, achieved a lifetime goal or made a real difference to the British community.
The winners will be announced on Friday 24 April 2015 at the Chateau Impney Hotel, Worcestershire.
British Indians are active entrepreneurs across a range of sectors from traditional manufacturing and retail companies to higher-tech, higher value companies in industries, like pharmaceuticals and technology, many of who will be in the front seat of driving growth in the UK.
Global financial trading company TradeNext is the main sponsor of the Awards that look to capture the multicultural and entrepreneurial spirit in the UK as well as celebrate the achievements of all those nominated.
Mohsin Jameel, CEO of TradeNext, said: “Contrary to what is being said on immigration, the Asian community and specifically, British Indian businesses have a great influence in the UK and those nominated are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to demonstrating the very positive contribution Asian businesses make in the country.”
TradeNext will present the Businessman of the Year, Best at Sport and the Entrepreneur of the Year Award, with Jagjeet Singh, the co-founder of TradeNext and chairman of the Crown Group, flying in from India to attend the Awards ceremony. He added: “The scale of progress and development amongst the British Indian community is outstanding and their contribution across all sectors shows the value of hard work commitment and progress. This is reflected in the calibre of nominees submitted for the Awards.”
Irfan Younis, from event organisers Oceanic Consulting, concluded: “We have had a fantastic response from the public with the amount of nominations that have flooded in, this is a testament to the depth of talent British Indians contribute to making a better Great Britain. We are honoured and humbled to be hosting the awards for the third year and we wish everyone involved the best of luck.”
