Monday, 01 April 2019

Final recap

What an incredible night full of entrepreneurship and inspiration!

A night full of amazing people, delicious food and spectacular performances!

The FUEL Awards 2019 was such a huge success. The amount of support we had throughout the night from Brookes Students, Staff members and everyone who was involved was immense and we would like to thank everyone for playing an integral role in the process!


The FUEL Awards 2019 saw exciting new takes on previous Brookes Enterprise Support awards!

The most exciting addition this year was the People’s Choice Awards, where the audience got to choose who were their favourite business of the night. The winner this year was Oxford Robotic Innovations after a fierce battle in the voting polls. Some other new additions were live entertainment and an amazing spread of food.


This year the FUEL Awards were very special as all the finalists were remarkable and had so much to offer. Their journey to be a finalist was especially difficult due to the tough competition they had to face starting from the application stage. Although every finalist brought their A-game on the night, there could only be 5 winners and these 5 winners were chosen with extreme difficulty by the judges.


These are the winners of each category, along with the runner up:

Creative Design Award:

Winner: Harriet Speed (THIS GIRL MAKES)

We wish them all the best of luck with their journeys, and we cannot wait to see what they achieve!
