Blue Ventures Director wins Social Entrepreneur Award

Blue Ventures’ co-founder Tom Savage won the 2007 Young Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award from Edge Upstarts for his work to create businesses that have a positive social and environmental impact.

The awards, started in 2001, showcase businesses that offer innovative and sustainable solutions to social issues, such as Blue Ventures, that have a socially beneficial purpose.


Ed Miliband, Minister for the Cabinet Office, presented the awards at a ceremony at St James’s Palace on the 10th May 2007.

Tom was highly acclaimed for his drive and ambition in setting up not only Blue Ventures but also Travelroots, a socially responsible tourism firm, and the website Tiptheplanet.com, a database for individuals and companies to find tips on being more environmentally friendly.
