What a fabulous event the Heropreneurs Awards proved to be, validating beyond any doubt BCA’s decision to be a sponsor and also to host London centric friends and clients. 

A fabulous venue, its atmosphere truly electric, packed with people sharing two common bonds, military service and entrepreneurship, brought together by Heropreneurs to celebrate their skills, achievements and above all the positive contribution that services leavers continue to give society after they have left the military. All presided over by Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex. 

Sincere congratulation to all finalists and of course the exceptional and deserving winners.

Our Senior Partner, Simon Banks-Cooper said, "from a personal perspective, the desire I have to share my business experiences for the benefit of the wider Defence community is no secret, be that wishing to see a transition community established and thriving in the East Riding or advocating on behalf of Army Cadets to ensure that employers are aware of the pool of employment ready young talent that exists, so to grasp an opportunity to work with Heropreneurs was never going to be a difficult decision. BCA was my first business venture after Regular Army service. Today, a successful practice but one that I started from scratch with all the trials and tribulations that experience brings, so it is somewhat evocative, as well as extremely gratifying that it too is able to support Heropreneurs and its invaluable work."


BCA are extremely pleased to be sponsoring the Heropreneurs Awards (in association with The Telegraph) for 2019.

Our Senior Partner Simon Banks-Cooper explains why he is pleased that BCA is associated with Heropreneurs and its business awards dinner.

Like many before me, and indeed since, I once had to contemplate an inevitable change of career. Without any frame of reference or particular aspiration a daunting prospect for most, but from the viewpoint of an operational deployment a perplexing and at times surreal experience. How I went on to sit the professional examinations to become an accountant is a not a story for here, but qualifying led me to go on and create what is now BCA Accountants and Corporate Financiers.

Today I have a number of business interests and do very little accounting, but it gives me a tremendous amount of satisfaction that all these years later my first entrepreneurial endeavour has chosen to become a sponsor of the 2019 Heropreneurs Awards, and in doing so support this fabulous charity in its work giving entrepreneurial service leavers access to a wealth of business support through its mentor program, which it does on an entirely philanthropic basis. I look forward to awards night and to chatting with those short listed.
