Nominations will soon open for the 2023 Melbourne Young Entrepreneur Awards

Australia’s most prestigious awards celebrating the achievements of young business owners are back for 2023, and will soon accept nominations from talented Melbourne-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 Melbourne Young Entrepreneur Awards gala dinner, with the venue to be announced shortly.

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.

Nominations for the 2023 Melbourne Young Entrepreneur Awards will open 1 July, 2023.
