THE founder of a support service based in Ormskirk for adults and children has been nominated for the Young Entrepreneur Award 2020.
Rebecca Heyes is the managing director of The Inclusive Learning Academy, which provides dyslexia and dyscalculia assessments.
She has been shortlisted in the regional finals of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, along with other inspiring entrepreneurs.
Rebecca started her entrepreneurial journey back in 2016 and shortly later opened The Inclusive Learning Academy.
The office is based in Ormskirk town centre and the sessions take place in a purposely designed classroom which allows staff to use a range of resources and technology to support teaching and learning.
Rebecca has not only used her determination and hard work to start her own company, but she has also just completed her third degree with Edge Hill University and is looking forward to starting her fourth in September 2020.
Founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, Francesca James, said: “Given what we’ve seen over the past few months, the 2020 edition of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards is arguably the most important. Now, more than ever, it’s vital that we celebrate the achievements of the country’s entrepreneurs and their determination in the face of such adversity.
“So many entrepreneurs will have been fighting to keep their business afloat over the past few months, and indeed will be over the coming months.
“That’s exactly why we launched the Pivot category; to recognise those that have managed to adapt and thrive throughout this period.
“I want to send my congratulations to each and every single entrepreneur who has made it to the shortlist this year, and I wish them the very best of luck for the regional finals.”
This year, with face to face events challenging, the regional heats will be held online on September 23.
