The role of entrepreneurs cannot be underestimated as contributors to the rejuvenation of the UK and global economy. They are creators of wealth, jobs and opportunity and despite the challenges of 2020, the appetite for entrepreneurship has not slowed. Entrepreneurs are specialists in identifying challenges, and with new and positive thinking they create concepts, jobs and innovation.
Their inspiration drives change and their unbounded ambition and determination helps to support the momentum of economic needs, and we recognise that more than ever. They know their part, and we know ours; ours is to support them, to encourage them, to open doors for them, to share our knowledge with them, and with entrepreneurial spirit at the core of our business, Julius Baer is pleased to be the 2021 Headline Sponsor for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in the UK. This complements our existing partnership with EY in Ireland.
