Business Green, Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 – Asher Bennett, Founder

Open to any entrepreneur who has founded and run a successful green business, this award is aiming to celebrate the best in green entrepreneurship. The judges are looking for an individual who has demonstrated true entrepreneurship and took a risk to build a new, exciting, and innovative green business, and has delivered significant progress over the past year.

Here’s what the judges had to say: In a shortlist that stands testament to the huge amount of green entrepreneurial talent in the UK, Asher Bennett got the judges’ vote thanks to a breakout 2018 during which Tevva Motors secured investment, scaled up production of its range-extended electric trucks, promoted UK clean tech overseas, and stepped up R&D in a raft of zero emission innovations.
