4eco director Jodi Huggett has been crowned businesswoman of the year at the 2014 StartUps Awards, held earlier this month at London’s Kensington Roof Gardens.
The judges said they were amazed by Jodi’s passion and drive to grow the 4eco business, despite suffering from a rare form of cancer since co-founding the firm in 2012.
Now in remission, Jodi has grown the Lincolnshire business in just two years to a point of manufacturing 20,000 units for environmentally friendly properties across the globe.
“Taking home gold at this year’s awards is a huge honour,” said Jodi. “As well as being a glowing reflection of 4eco’s continued success in the renewables sector, it showcases the innovation and prowess that young businesses have to offer.
“I’m really looking forward to 2015, building on 4eco’s continued growth, this award win and our global expansion plans.”
