Cheryl Latham

Outstanding Entrepreneur - 2017 Winner

Cheryl Latham is founder and CEO of new ethical energy provider, Brighter World Energy. In July 2016, the 33-year-old, from Liverpool, simultaneously graduated from an MBA at Manchester Business School and closed a £500,000 investment round. Cheryl launched Brighter World Energy in October 2016 and has been taking on the Big Six energy providers with a new purpose driven business model.
The energy sector has remained traditional and male dominated for decades. Coupled with this, current high scale investment in entrepreneurs is skewed in the favour of men with only 10% of global venture capital given to female entrepreneurs.
