The Melbourne Young Entrepreneur Awards recognises the city's top business founders who are at the helm of not only successful but unique and extremely popular businesses that have contributed to the economic prosperity of Melbourne.

A highlight on the social calendar, the Melbourne Young Entrepreneur Awards provide a rare opportunity for the city's emerging leaders to meet and connect, exchange ideas in a fun and relaxing environment.

Connect, exchange ideas and create business opportunities.

The Young Entrepreneur Awards is also the most direct way to put yourself and your business or brand before a national audience.

As part of each nomination, every entrant in the Young Entrepreneur Awards will be considered for inclusion in Business News Australia's exclusive Australia's Top 100 Young Entrepreneur list.
