UK’s best technology entrepreneurs recognised at
‘The Oscars of the Technology Industry’

Legerity Founder and CEO, Jeremy Wood, has been selected as a finalist in the eighth Enterprise Awards for the second year in a row. The awards are the ‘Oscars of the Technology Industry’, held in association with the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists. They celebrate and recognise the very best of the UK’s technology entrepreneurial talent.

Jeremy is a seasoned and serial technology entrepreneur, who previously won the prestigious E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year award for Emerging Entrepreneur. Legerity is his fifth software start-up, founded with a vision to modernise the finance function in the most demanding of environments across Insurance, Banking and Telecoms. With ever-changing accounting standards, and stricter regulation across the globe, many firms face huge challenges with out-dated back-office systems unable to cope with the volume and complexity of today’s markets. Legerity solves these problems by helping organisations embrace change and make finance a business enabler.

Technology start-ups are not easy, and challenges exist throughout the business life cycle. Jeremy’s view is that overcoming barriers is just part of the job of being an entrepreneur. He credits his adherence to the business principles of product innovation and unequalled customer service as key drivers in his success, supported by the financial disciplines of capital efficiency, revenue growth, cash generation and profitability.

Focused on the exceptional achievements of founders, the Enterprise Awards have recognised some of Britain’s most inspirational individuals that have achieved prominence on both private and public markets. The judging panel looks for examples of vision, growth, innovation, funding, use of capital, use of resources, strategy, execution, ambition and the determination to succeed.

The 2018 winners will be announced at the Enterprise Awards Dinner on Wednesday 27th June 2018 at The Dorchester Hotel, London.
