Piers Linney, the founder and co-CEO of Cloud Services Provider (CSP) Outsourcery and newest addition to the hit BBC series Dragons’ Den, has been nominated for the 2014 EY Entrepreneur of the Year award for the London & South region.
He has been recognised for his work with Outsourcery, the CSP he co-founded with his business partner Simon Newton in 2007 after buying and transforming telecoms provider Genesis Communications. Linney invested more than £10m of his own money after recognising the huge potential in the cloud, named by independent technology research firm Forrester as the fastest growing technology sector.
Piers comments: “This is one of the premier business awards in the world, so it’s a huge honour to have been recognised as a finalist for Outsourcery. The journey of transforming the company into an internationally recognised leader in cloud has been a real example of what commitment to a clear vision and an entrepreneurial mind-set can achieve.
“Competition for this award is intense and I am delighted to be in the company of the cream of British leaders and innovators. I’m keen to use the awards as a platform to champion the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation, and help to inspire the next generation of young entrepreneurs.”
