Cumnock Businesswoman in line for Entrepreneur Award
Cumnock based modular home expert The Wee House Company is looking forward to The Great British Entrepreneur Awards in September – with innovative founder, Jennifer Higgins, in line to receive a top award.
The pioneering house building company, who design, construct and deliver modular homes to anywhere in the UK, was founded seven years ago after Jennifer realised the potential of modular housing as a solution for first time buyers, downsizers and holiday homes.
The 28 year old businesswoman, who is one of four finalists for ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’, has since diversified with new brand ‘Connect Modular’ delivering much needed affordable housing in Scotland.
Founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, Francesca James, said, “Given what we’ve seen over the past few months, the 2020 edition of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards is arguably the most important. Now, more than ever, it’s vital that we celebrate the achievements of the country’s entrepreneurs and their determination in the face of such adversity.
The Awards have celebrated some outstanding entrepreneurs who have gone on to become household names. Previous winners include the founders of BrewDog, Tangle Teezer, LAD Bible, Clearscore & The Cambridge Satchel Company.
Judges of the awards include Hayley Parsons, who founded Go Compare, Cath Kidston, Lord Bilimoria of Cobra Beer and Kanya King, the founder of the MOBO awards.
Francesca continued, ““I want to send my congratulations to each and every single entrepreneur who has made it to the shortlist this year, and I wish them the very best of luck for the regional finals.”
