AcclimatiseMe founder receives royal recognition   Leave a comment

I was very honoured this week to be awarded the Yorkshire Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, presented by Prince Andrew. Whilst I have never been in business to win awards or receive accolades, to receive recognition of this prestigious award was a genuine honour. I’m not so good at blowing my own trumpet, so here are some words about the event and why AcclimatiseMe won.

Chris with award

A recent University postgraduate has received a prestigious award from the Duke of York in recognition of his entrepreneurial skills.
Chris Hale, who founded AcclimatiseMe, an innovative altitude business whilst studying for an MA in Business Management, was a winner in the first ever Duke of York Entrepreneur Awards which were held on Tuesday 21 May.
The Awards acknowledged Yorkshire and the Humber’s finest student and graduate entrepreneurs and Chris was one of ten winners who represented each of the region’s universities. Yorkshire was specifically chosen for the launch of the Duke of York Young Entrepreneur Awards due to the strength of its local partnerships, as well as the region’s success in developing business start-up services and funding.
​Chris founded AcclimatiseMe whilst completing his MA in Business Management at Leeds Trinity University. The young entrepreneur has introduced cutting edge altitude training technology from New Zealand to the British market, which helps climbers to prepare for their summits, thrill seekers to conquer Kilimanjaro and elite sports professionals to improve their performance and speed up their rehab process. AcclimatiseMe continues to attract critical acclaim, with Chris currently in the running for a Shell LiveWIRE Grand Ideas Awards.

Thanks for reading, onwards and upwards for AcclimatiseMe!
