Midlands-based entrepreneur Matt Jones, Founder of digital college Oxbridge Home Learning, has been awarded the title of ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ for the second time in 2018.
A pioneer of digital learning, the 36-year-old, who has grown two successful learning providers since 2007, scooped the prize at Nachural’s Entrepreneurship Awards, which celebrates leaders and businesses who help drive the region forward.
The award comes weeks after Matt was named ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ at Nachural’s Business Awards, as well as one of the Top 50 Entrepreneurs to look out for, esp. in education, in a feature article by the Midlands Insider.
The Entrepreneur of the Year category recognises business leaders who create prosperity and employment in the community - leaders who are the cornerstone of the economy within the Midlands.
In three years, Matt’s helped thousands of students to find success through education. Devoted to research, technology and innovation, Matt’s invested in creating an enterprise that changes lives and allows people learn without limits. Upon receiving his award, a very happy Matt commented:
“I am over the moon to have received this award, thank you so much to everyone at Nachural Events and especially to Ninder Johal for believing in me.
“The Midlands is a great place to be doing business, and I feel that we are making waves as a region. Although this is an award in my name, I always remember that I’d never be in this position without a world-class team at Oxbridge behind me every step of the way. It’s another massive achievement for us all, we’re ecstatic!
“Going forward, we are going to continue doing what we do best: create award-winning learning experiences that maximise student potential and save the world from boring learning”
The Nachural Entrepreneurship Awards took place on Friday 28th September at the Maher Centre, Leicester.
