Events agency founder makes Top 100 Future Entrepreneurs list




Louise Davies, the founder and co-director of sustainable event management agency Seventeen Events, has been named as one of the Future 100 Young Entrepreneurs of the Year during Global Entrepreneurship Week 2008.

The Future 100 Awards profile young entrepreneurs aged 18-35 who are demonstrating entrepreneurial flair and innovation in progressing a responsible business venture – one which demonstrates a balance between economic, environmental and social goals to achieve ultimate business success.

Seventeen Events is a sustainable event management agency based in east London. It manages a variety of high-profile events, including the Observer Ethical Awards.

As well as being compliant to BS8901, the British Standard for sustainable event management, Seventeen has also recently launched eventberry, an interactive tool to allow other organisations to gain compliance.

“I’m honoured to be part of the Future 100 and hope that these awards inspire others to combine an entrepreneurial spirit with a vision for sustainability,” said Davies. “I also hope that other event agencies will follow Seventeen’s lead and consider sustainability as an essential part of the event planning process.”
