For more than a decade the Young Entrepreneur Awards have uncovered the nation's top business minds and put them in the spotlight for their talents.
We've always been impressed by the entrants, but last year we were blown away by the nominations received. Clearly the difficulties of the pandemic did not do much to dampen the spirits of these young pioneers, many of whom have thrived.
Some nominees implemented clever and timely pivots when their models came under threat, choosing to jump on the moment and make sure their communities were looked after during a time of crisis. Others had well-prepared and pandemic-proof business models built many years in advance to take advantage of an increasingly online economy.
The time has now come to open up nominations for what we are sure will be yet another stellar cohort of Young Entrepreneur Awards candidates from all over Australia, no matter where in the country your head office is based. We look forward to hearing your stories.
