Hosted in conjunction with the Natupreneur Experience 2020 and FX Medicine, these awards have been created to celebrate our profession and the incredible diversity and inspiration of people in it, the innovators, creators and trail blazers.
When we see each other leaning in, innovating, and growing, it inspires us to do the same. And while the business journey can be incredibly lonely at times, little reminders that we are doing a great job can motivate us to keep going and thriving.
Which is the inspiration behind organising this event and involving the Natupreneur community in nominations and voting.
