EY supports female entrepreneurs with leading business network

10 female entrepreneurs across the UK included in EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women class of 2019.

EY announced its UK Entrepreneurial Winning Women class of 2019 last night at a dinner held at its UK headquarters, recognising female entrepreneurs who are ready to scale operations and become global market leaders.

Due to the strong quality and record-high number of applications to the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women (EWW) Europe programme this year, a group of 10 UK-based business leaders has been established in recognition of the outstanding candidates.

Last night’s event welcomed the female founders into EY’s global network of female entrepreneurs. 2017 EWW alumni Amanda Thomson, CEO and Founder of Thomson & Scott, a specialist in Champagne, Prosecco and Sparkling Alcohol-free Wine, shared her own experiences and journey while on the programme.


She commented: “At long last women are being recognised for our achievements and importantly, big ambitions in business. EY, with its incredible Entrepreneur programme, has uniquely long-recognised and supported female entrepreneurs who have plans to scale.  I count myself truly lucky to be part of this incredible network as my business grows.”

Joanna Santinon, UK&I Tax partner and Entrepreneur Of The Year UK partner sponsor at EY, said: “We’re truly inspired by this year’s uplift in the number of high-quality applications from female entrepreneurs in the UK actively seeking to take their businesses to the next level. These women have the potential to be a powerful economic force, paving the way for a greater presence of women-led businesses in the UK market.

“We recognise that access to successful role models and business-building networks is absolutely critical for entrepreneurs, especially female entrepreneurs, to accelerate growth. Through this programme we hope to progress and guide a number of the UK’s fastest growing businesses led by women, helping them to realise their full capabilities.”
