A Wrexham based business has been shortlisted as an Early Stage Stand Out in Wales at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2024.

Ticket Buddiez, based in Wrexham, has been recognised for its outstanding contributions to Customer Service.

The company, which launched just a few months ago, offers customer support outsourcing for new, established or rapidly growing brands.

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards, often referred to as the “Grammys of Entrepreneurship,” celebrates the achievements of the UK’s most dynamic and innovative businesses.

Each year, the awards receive thousands of applications, underscoring the competitive nature and high standard of the competition.

This year’s shortlist showcases a combined turnover of nearly £2.9 billion and employs approximately 20,000 people, highlighting the
critical role these businesses play in driving economic growth and innovation.

Emily Allcroft, Ticket Buddiez founder, said she feels “so unbelievably lucky and super duper proud to have been shortlisted for the GBEA.”

“We only launched a few months ago, and have been absolutely flat out since then to establish and grow our business,” she added.

“This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and we are excited to celebrate this achievement with the wider entrepreneurial community.

“I have Lupus, amongst other health conditions and this recognition feels like a win against my illness.

“If I can start a business and be a finalist at the GBEA just a few months later, then anyone can and I really hope to shine a light on the opportunities available if people take a bet on themselves.

Previous winners of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards include the founders of BrewDog, MyEnergi, Zilch, Grenade, and ClearScore, who have gone on to become household names.

The awards ceremony will take place on Monday 18 November, at London’s prestigious Grosvenor House, where winners for each category in each region will be announced.

This event is the largest entrepreneurial celebration in the UK, providing a platform for businesses to connect, celebrate, and champion the spirit of entrepreneurship.

Francesca James, Founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: “The calibre of entries this year is truly outstanding.

“These entrepreneurs are the backbone of our economy, and their stories are a testament to the incredible resilience and creativity of the UK’s business community.

“We are thrilled to recognise their achievements and support their continued growth.”

Conrad Ford, Chief Product & Strategy Officer at headline sponsor Allica Bank, added: “It has been a real honour to sponsor this year’s Great British Entrepreneur Awards.

“Hearing the inspiring stories from the incredible businesses that these awards champion really brings to life the important contribution that British entrepreneurs make to our economy.”
