Economic Innovator of the Year Awards 2020

25 November 2020, 7:30pm


This is the third year The Spectator has partnered with Julius Baer to create The Economic Innovator of the year Awards, which celebrates creative entrepreneurship in the UK.

Entrants for these awards are innovators from every corner of the UK. The winners are passionate about their products, financially resilient, looking to the future beyond the pandemic and determined to make a positive contribution to human wellbeing. The award categories included four regions; London and the South East, The Midlands and North East, Scotland and Northern Ireland, The West and South West. We also made a special award for outstanding social impact.

On Wednesday 25 November, The Spectator’s chairman Andrew Neil welcomed an international audience, paying tribute to our sponsor the private bank Julius Baer, and congratulating our winners. The Spectator’s business editor Martin Vander Weyer was live on stage at Landing Forty Two — the sky-high City venue where we originally hoped to host a gala dinner — with Priya Lakhani, founder of 2019’s overall Award winner Century Tech, who presented a new Award for Social Impact; and David Durlacher, chief executive of Julius Baer for the UK and Ireland, who announced the overall 2020 winner.

We hope you enjoy watching the awards and look forward to returning in 2021.
