Nominations are open for the 2022 Brisbane Young Entrepreneur Awards

Australia’s most prestigious awards celebrating the achievements of young business owners are back for 2022, and we are now accepting nominations from talented Brisbane-based entrepreneurs of all stripes.  At Business News Australia we are calling on all game changers as part of our mission to identify and celebrate young business talent.

The Young Entrepreneur Awards are an incredible opportunity not only to be recognised, but to join a cohort of like-minded young businesspeople eager to make their impact on Australia and the world.

Every entrant will be considered for inclusion in Business News Australia’s Top 100 Young Entrepreneurs list.

The selection process will culminate in the Brisbane Young Entrepreneur Awards gala dinner, to be held on Friday, 23 September 2022 at the W Brisbane.

Winners will then be invited to the Australian Young Entrepreneur Awards gala dinner, joining leading business minds from all over the country.

This is not your average Awards ceremony. Form close bonds, exchange ideas and forge new business opportunities. That’s what this is all about.

So what are you waiting for?

To be eligible to enter the 2022 awards, you must be the founder of a business based in Brisbane and born in 1983 or later. Category award winners will automatically become finalists for the Australian Young Entrepreneur Awards.
