Entrepreneur of the Year

Longcroft founder Abi Purser wins ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ Silver in National Grand Final of the SME Business Awards 2019. Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel founder Abi Purser is delighted to have taken home the Silver
Award for ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ at this year’s prestigious National SME Business Awards.

Back in June, Abi proudly won the ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ category at the 2019 Hertfordshire SME Business Awards. She was then invited to attend the prestigious National Grand Final at Wembley Stadium on Friday 6th December 2019. Leading business figures from throughout the country gathered for the high-profile event in Wembley’s Bobby Moore Suite.

The SME (Small Medium Enterprise) Awards aim to raise the profile of industrious, hardworking and enterprising SME’s in the county. Abi and the Longcroft team rubbed shoulders with inspiring figures representing the very best of small and medium enterprises in the UK.

“I am so proud to bring home the Silver Entrepreneur of the Year Award. It is amazing to have Longcroft recognised at such a high level and at a truly special event. Although I am delighted to have succeeded in the entrepreneur category, this award is a credit to the whole Longcroft team and family. All of our hotel owners share my love and passion for all things feline and are driven to provide the very highest standards of animal care for our customers. So, a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to where Longcroft is today. Thank you to our team and expert hotel owners for their incredible hard work and dedication. And my sincere thanks to every customer who has paid us the compliment of entrusting us with the care of their beloved feline companions.” – Abi Purser.

The expert judging panel at the awards, made up of representatives from successful UK business, felt Abi embodied the entrepreneurial spirit, recognising her vision, creativity, enthusiasm and tenacious approach. Her hard work is reflected in the incredible growth that the Longcroft Cat Hotel Group has seen since it was founded in 2010. There are now 21 Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotels in the country, with more planned for the New Year. This reflects the fast-growing demand for Longcroft’s level of service and expertise.
