Octopus entrepreneurs are competing on the global stage

8 Jun 2018

Octopus co-founders Chris Hulatt and Simon Rogerson are heading to Monaco to take part in the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Forum 2018.

After scooping two awards at the prestigious EY UK Entrepreneur Of The Year 2017 ceremony, they'll be representing the UK throughout the event, taking place between 13 and 17 June. Chris and Simon will be competing for the world title against entrepreneurs from more than 50 different countries. 

As Chris says: “When we set the business up in my lounge 18 years ago, we never imagined we'd be able to grow Octopus to the point where it is today, or that we would one day win the UK Entrepreneur Of The Year award. It has been a phenomenally busy and incredibly enjoyable journey.”

And thinking about their trip to Monaco, Simon added: “We’re excited and we will represent the UK with pride. To have some the world’s best entrepreneurs all in one place for four days is a huge opportunity. I fully expect to return with my head buzzing with new ideas.”
