A UNIVERSITY of Worcester business lecturer has been named among Britain’s top 100 entrepreneurs supporting the next generation of young talent.
Dr David Bozward was recently named in the ‘Maserati 100’, appearing alongside the likes of John Caudwell, co-founder of Phones 4U and Easyjet founder, Stelios Haji-Ioannou.
The search for the prestigious Maserati 100 was launched at the end of last year as part of the Italian car brand’s centennial year celebrations.
In partnership with the Centre for Entrepreneurs, members of the business community were invited to nominate the individuals who they felt should be recognised for their support of the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Dr Bozward was recognised for being a prolific technology entrepreneur, educator, mentor and adviser on international youth entrepreneurship.
With a background in 3G technology, he is now founder and chairman of games company Dojit as well as being a senior lecturer at the university.
He has delivered several national campaigns to nurture youth entrepreneurship, helping scale student enterprise charity NACUE and investment group Find Invest Grow.
Dr Bozward has also hosted entrepreneurship bootcamps and guest lectures to more than 20 universities and has advised the European Commission and other public bodies.
“He is also the author of several books and guides for entrepreneurs.
“It’s fantastic being recognised as one of the top 100 of Britain’s most successful mentors and business advisers who are supporting the next generation,” Dr Bozward said.
“Working with young people and their business ideas has always been inspiring for me and I just love being able to help develop their passion in business and social entrepreneurship.”
