Crave Announced as Regional Winner of Barclays’ Entrepreneur Awards

August 14, 2020

Crave have been announced as a winner in the regional stage of the Barclays’ Entrepreneur Awards


The awards highlight and recognise entrepreneurs who are transforming their industries, the economy and society. We are delighted to be regional winners in the International category.  This category recognises a business that has established an impressive trading footprint and market growth in international markets over the last three years.

Gareth Hughes, Crave Interactive CEO commented:

“We are delighted to be recognised as a leading international growth company. The hospitality industry has been hit very hard by this crisis and we quickly realised we needed to adapt to the changed environment where the safety of staff and customers is high on the agenda. Our technology is supporting businesses globally to deliver exceptional guest services digitally and building confidence in consumers to safely get out and enjoy the fantastic venues we are so lucky to have.”


Juliet Rogan, National Head of High Growth at Barclays, said:

It’s been a difficult time for businesses due to the coronavirus outbreak, which is why it’s more important than ever we celebrate entrepreneurs and recognise their achievements. The awards are a celebration of the exceptional innovation and leadership entrepreneurs show, helping to create social change and growth. This is the fifth year of the awards and as a regional winner, Crave Interactive Limited will go forward to the national stage, which will recognise businesses from across the UK.


All regional winners will now go through to the national final, where an overall winner will be announced on November 26th, 2020.  Ahead of the final, national judging will take place with key industry leaders, influencers and eco-system partners in order to select the eventual winner.

The awards bring the full entrepreneurial community together. This year, for the first time, Barclaycard are joining the event alongside Barclays Rise and Eagle Labs as partners of the Awards. This group wide initiative started five years ago and forms an integral part of our support for entrepreneurship across the bank.
