Morningside Pharmaceuticals were delighted to be the Headline Sponsors of the first ever Real Entrepreneurs Club Awards, which celebrated the East Midlands’ best and brightest entrepreneurs at a glittering ceremony at the Radisson Blu Hotel.
The awards honoured Entrepreneurs who enhance productivity and utilise existing resources in the most effective ways, which helps to generate new wealth, and adds value to the local and national economy.
Entrepreneurship is very important to Morningside Pharmaceuticals, because we were founded on an entrepreneur’s dream to make ‘quality healthcare an affordable and accessible reality throughout the world’.
During the ceremony our Chief Operating Officer (COO), Monica Huang, delivered a rousing keynote speech about Morningside’s entrepreneurial journey.
Monica, who also presented the International Entrepreneur Award on the night, said: “Our business has had to pivot many times in order to grow into a leading East Midlands company today.
“It has led Morningside on a journey from being a purely export-only distributor for Aid Agencies, UN and NGOs to the developing world, to embracing innovation based on patient needs, Research & Development and continuous improvement.
“This pivot has enabled Morningside to grow to become a developer, manufacturer and trusted supplier of generic and branded medicines to the UK and international markets.
Today, I’m very proud to acknowledge that Morningside has – since inception – exported to more than 120 countries around the world; has launched many unique products; and our medicines are distributed twice daily to the NHS in the UK.”
Many congratulations to all of the night’s nominees and winners, who are a true inspiration and trailblazers for the future health and wealth of our businesses and communities
