ufurnish.com has been named a winner of The New Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the 2020 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, which took place during an online ceremony on 10th November.

Previous winners include Joe Wicks, James Timpson OBE, DPD UK, Hotel Chocolat, Daily Sparkle and Missguided.

ufurnish.com is a search and discovery engine for home furniture and furnishings, which aims to connect consumers with the right products for their home, from more than furniture retailers, all in one place.

The judges commented that it was “a really robust and investable business led by a brilliant entrepreneur”.

Deirdre Mc Gettrick, co-founder and CEO (pictured), says: “We are enormously proud to have won a Lloyds Bank National Business Awards – this award represents the culmination of all the hard work and dedication of the whole ufurnish.com team over the last 12 months. To be recognised amongst a group of extremely talented entrepreneurs is humbling. We have exciting plans for the future of ufurnish.com and look forward to achieving great success."

Sarah Austin, awards director, comments: “2020 has been a challenging but inspiring year – a year where we’ve witnessed just how innovative and adaptive the UK business community can be, whether that means helping employees adjust to  new ways of working or shifting production towards masks, ventilators and handwash. This year’s winners are testament to the creativity, agility and resilience that sets British business apart.”
