2017 NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards


It has just been announced that North West/Yorkshire & Humber based Tisski Ltd has been shortlisted for the 2017 NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards in the #GoDo Entrepreneur of the Year Award category.

CEO, Anna Assassa beat off some tough competition in order to make the regional shortlist, with over 1000 businesses entering the awards nationally across the wide range of categories.

Tisski is a technology company specialising in Microsoft Dynamics. Not your usual business for an unqualified, Essex girl but Anna knows her stuff and prides herself on being a wife of a surgeon, stepmother of two teenage girls and lover of her 3 dogs.

They are an above average when it comes to female employees too with 38% of her trusted workforce being women compared to the 26% Tech industry average. Assassa firmly believes that being a female boss in a man’s world only becomes an issue when you make it one, when posed with the question of ‘What is it like running a business as a woman?’ Anna’s response is something to be inspired by:

Anna is excited to be shortlisted for the awards, now in its fifth year, the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards has celebrated some amazing entrepreneurs over the years, many of whom are now household names. Past winners include David Buttress of Just Eat, Julie Deane of The Cambridge Satchel Company, James Watt of BrewDog and Alexander Solomou of TheLADBible Group.

Creator of the Awards, Francesca James, said: “We have been inundated with some incredible entries this year, and all shortlisted applicants should be extremely proud of themselves!
