After 10 years of The Great British Entrepreneur Awards, reboxed® has been given the opportunity to stand alongside so many other successful and talented entrepreneurs. Launched in 2012, The Great British Entrepreneur Awards was created to celebrate the entrepreneurs behind some of the UK’s best businesses. The judging panel is made up of a large variety of successful entrepreneurs. Including the likes of Howard Wong from Little Moons, Jamie Crummie from Too Good To Go and Andrew Stevens from Vodafone. The GBEA is more than just an awards show. It has become a community bringing together so many like minded entrepreneurs to connect and showcase their business.

Phil Kemish says

“We love working and meeting other Entrepreneurs. We run a coffee morning where we get founders in a room to chat and help support each other, a bit like group therapy which is great. Great Britain has always been known for its entrepreneurial spirit so to be recognised for our hard work and success by the Great British Entrepreneur Awards is a huge honour."

The reboxed founders have worked together for over 12 years. From Matt's involvment in GRM Daily, a youtube channel which now has over 8 billion views and together via their Agency Disrupt selling millions of products. It was here they knew their brand building superpower could be used for something bigger. Launching in 2020, reboxed® has grown quickly with over £1.5m sales in the first 12 months. Now, with over 10,000 reboxers reboxed is on course to 4x that by the end of this year.
