We were incredibly excited to have been able to find and recognise so much talent in 2023.

You have every reason to be celebrating your achievements and you should be proud for making Brisbane a great city to do business in.

We look forward to following your business journey and hope to see you at the Awards again next year!

The Australian Young Entrepreneur Awards celebrate diversity, and we strongly encourage participation from founders belonging to any group that is underrepresented in business. 


To be eligible to enter the 2024 awards, you must be the founder of a business based in Brisbane and born in 1984 or later. Category award winners will automatically become finalists for the Australian Young Entrepreneur Awards.

Finalists will be vying to win one of 20 category awards, and all will be considered for the Trailblazer and Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards.



Quite simply our mission is to find and recognise young business talent in Australia.
