Leamington businesswoman wins Female Founder of the Year award

A BUSINESSWOMAN from Leamington has been hailed Female Founder of the Year.

Sophie Parker, from Tutor In A Box, won the accolade at The Women’s Business Awards, which celebrates the best businesswomen from across the country.

The Female Founder of the Year award goes to a woman who has started her own company and is rising to the top in her field. She is not only a successful businesswoman, but is also empowering women around her to rise up and succeed too. She is an inspiration to everyone.

Sophie was presented with the award for Female Founder of the Year at a ceremony held in Cheltenham.

In the past year, she has doubled her business to help even more children enjoy their learning and achieve success in English, Maths and Science. She has also grown the number of tutors working for the company and became an approved provider for the government backed National Tutoring Programme.

Sophie said: “It was an absolute honour to be surrounded by so many amazing women at the awards. To take home an award was even more incredible”.

Awards founder Angela De Souza added: “There is nothing quite like celebrating the accomplishments of our businesswomen. This year we saw some incredible entries which made the judge’s decision really tough. Although only one woman could win in each category, we feel that every single woman who entered is a winner – she is still standing, she is still determined to succeed and she still has hope for the future, a winning attitude indeed.

“I am so proud of all businessmen and women who are pushing through this tough year.”
