Despite the challenges of the past year, as a region, we have a lot to be proud of: entrepreneurial spirit and a drive to power on has led to more business start-ups, with passionate people giving their all to adapt, progress and deliver some amazing things.
We are celebrating the Humber's lockdown entrepreneurs - shining a light on our fantastic people and their fantastic businesses and providing an opportunity for them to share their story of the inspiration behind their business, what it's like being a business owner in the Humber, and any future plans.
