Welcome to the Hallam Enterprise Awards 2021
This time last year, I reflected on the extraordinary period we were all then living through as the result of a global pandemic. I had fully expected to be welcoming you all to a “live” Hallam Enterprise Awards event here at Sheffield Hallam University, but we have reluctantly decided to maintain a virtual version for a further year. That said, we have plans to host a small event at the Hallam i-Lab this coming November to celebrate the achievements of our 2020 and 2021 HEA finalists. All finalists have had to deal with extraordinary challenges in setting up their businesses, and the Enterprise Team wants to use this event to recognise their amazing achievements.
This year, I am personally delighted to see so many of our finalists representing our Work for Yourself sandwich year placement programme and the Class of 2020 and 2021 graduate programme. I am also incredibly proud of just how socially and environmentally aware many of these businesses are.
