Bigger prizes for our stars

Have your say

Ten years ago, I set up the Stelios Award for Disabled Entrepreneurs with the charity Leonard Cheshire Disability to recognise the many talented and ambitious disabled people who have set up their own businesses.

This year I am making the prize even bigger!

The winner will walk out with £30,000, and there will be four runner-up prizes.

We are also expanding the entry criteria, so everyone can apply, not just disabled people.

If you, or someone you know, has a company that creates work, products or services for disabled people, we want to hear from you.

The award is now open, and we are keen to hear from all types of businesses, even if still a start-up.

Apply now or nominate someone, before the deadline on 10 October 2016 by visiting facebook (Stelios Philanthropic Foundation) or go to
