The prestigious ‘Great British Entrepreneur Awards’ has chosen the founder of Skin HQ, Haroon Danis, as the first Fashion & Beauty Entrepreneur of the Year for the north west. The announcement was made at the regional finals, which was held virtually due to the pandemic situation.
The Fashion & Beauty Entrepreneur of the Year award, a new category for 2020 celebrates the entrepreneurs who stand out in the category with truly unique products or the way they do business.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak congratulated the award winners and also expressed his strong backing for the country’s entrepreneurs.
“Entrepreneurs are creating new businesses and adapting to the crisis, as seen in this year’s entries. And that’s what we need to happen if we want our economy to bounce back. We need all of you to keep inventing, keep taking risks, keep creating new businesses,” he said.
“It’s my job as Chancellor to celebrate, champion and support you,” Sunak added.
Commenting on Haroon’s achievement, Francesca James, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “Haroon has a wonderful entrepreneurial story and I’m delighted for him to win this award. I’ll be keeping a very close eye on what he does in the years to come and look forward to welcoming Haroon to the community.”
