The Blair Project has been nominated for Social Enterprise of the Year award in this year’s E3 Business awards, despite not even being launched yet.
The Blair Project, which launches officially in the week leading up to the British Grand Prix, aims to help drivers, engineers and mechanics through funding and education to work their way up the motor racing ladder.
“We are pleased and delighted to have been shortlisted as finalists for this prestigious award,” said Blair Project CEO Nile Henry.
“We’ve only been in operation for three months and It is an amazing achievement to have beaten 200 other companies in making the final shortlist of four. This reflects the awesome potential of the company”.
Speaking on behalf of the competition’s organisers, Managing Director Mubarek Chati was extremely complementary of the Blair Project.
“In compiling the shortlist, the Nominations Panel certainly had an unenviable task and for The Blair Project to have secured a place in the final is an achievement of which it should be very proud,” said Chati.
“Last year marked the launch of the E3 Awards and we were very impressed then by the number and calibre of the nominees, but this year, we’ve seen even more.”
The award winners will be announced at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton on September 18. More information about the E3 Business Awards, including a full list of finalists, can be found at www. e3businessawards.co.uk.
