Brisbane Young Entrepreneur Awards

The times may have changed but our mission remains firm - to identify and celebrate young business talent in Australia.

In a year of great upheaval spurred by the COVID-19 pandemic, the tenacity and creativity of entrepreneurs is in the spotlight. At Business News Australia, our Young Entrepreneur Awards recognise the outstanding leadership and success of founders all over the country.

Success can take on so many meanings: for some it's about scale, job creation and the positive disruption of new business models and ideas; for others, it may simply mean survival through today's challenges in order to pave the way for future prosperity.

This is not your average awards ceremony. The game-changers who participate will form part of an influential cohort with access to key stakeholders in both business and government.

Every entrant in the Young Entrepreneur Awards will be considered for inclusion in Business News Australia's exclusive Top 100 Young Entrepreneur list published later this year.

The Young Entrepreneur Awards will culminate in a gala event comprising a stellar cast who share the same strain of passion, eye for innovation and desire to leave a legacy.

Form close bonds, exchange ideas and create business opportunities. It's what this night is all about.

To be eligible to enter the 2020 awards you must be the founder of a business, be based in Australia and been born in 1980 or later.
