Maserati and the Centre for Global Entrepreneurs announces the Maserati 100 list

Luxury Italian car manufacturer, Maserati, and the Centre for Entrepreneurs (CFE) recently launched a campaign to find 100 of Britain’s most successful entrepreneurs who are supporting the next generation of up and coming business talent.

As part of Maserati’s centennial year celebrations, ‘The Maserati 100’ recognises established entrepreneurs who are generously giving their time and resources to support the next generation of young entrepreneurs. Members of the public were invited to nominate individuals online.

The Maserati 100 list was announced on 22 February 2015 with our very own Michelle Wright, CEO of Cause4, featured. The full Maserati 100 list can be found here www.themaserati100.co.uk. On Thursday 26 February, Maserati will bring the group of one hundred individuals together for an exclusive evening celebration hosted at the home of the Centre for Entrepreneurs in London's Mayfair.

Luke Johnson, serial entrepreneur and founder of the Centre for Entrepreneurs, said: "Entrepreneurs have long been celebrated for their role as job creators – indeed UK entrepreneurs have created more jobs in the past five years than the rest of the EU combined – but their deep commitment to helping others often goes unnoticed. The Maserati 100 exemplifies the economic and social value of entrepreneurs; growing the economy, creating jobs and helping the next generation do the same."

Peter Denton, Region Manager, Maserati North Europe, said: "Maserati was born from the entrepreneurial spirit of five brothers 100 years ago. Today, the Centre for Entrepreneurs actively encourages and supports that same drive and ambition. It is important to recognise the valuable work Britain's entrepreneurs are doing for the country's economy, which is why 'The Maserati 100' acknowledges those established names who are now generously giving their time and resources to support the next generation of business founders."
