Award for Entrepreneur of the Year on the Riviera

1st February 2012

Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, founder of easyJet and serial entrepreneur, today presented the Stelios Award for Entrepreneur of the Year on the Riviera during a live interview at the studios of 106.5 Riviera Radio in Monaco, marking the launch of the station's "Ultimate Business Boost – 2012".

The "Ultimate Business Boost" celebrates entrepreneurship on the Riviera by awarding the value of 20,000EU in radio and internet marketing to the winning entrepreneur. This year, Stelios sweetens the prize further by giving 10,000EU in cash to the winner – resulting in a 30,000EU business boost.

In its first year, the Stelios Award for Entrepreneur of the Year on the Riviera recognizes the achievements of recent entrepreneurial ventures in the area: applicants must have been established from 1 – 5 years on the Riviera, have positive cash flow during the year prior to the award, employs at least 5 people and represents a unique and workable business idea. The award is funded personally by Stelios through the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation, which is dedicated to the three E's - Education, Entrepreneurship and the Environment.

Through the Foundation Stelios also promotes entrepreneurship in the UK, Greece and Cyprus offering annual awards in each country celebrating entrepreneurial excellence.

Commenting on the awards, Stelios said:

"I am passionate about promoting entrepreneurship – on the Riviera and elsewhere in Europe - especially in these challenging times where SME business creation and growth are essential to a region's prosperity. I applaud Riviera Radio's "Ultimate Business Boost" and am delighted to be a part of it with the Stelios Award for Entrepreneur of the Year on the Riviera. I'll be tuning in to 106.5 for sure!"

Paul Kavanagh, Director of Riviera Radio added:

"This is a unique opportunity for businesses in this area to be recognized for their excellence; We know how challenging it can be to grow a business today, so this prize is extremely attractive. We are happy that Stelios – the ultimate serial entrepreneur! – has joined us in his commitment to the business life of the region."
