The Melbourne Young Entrepreneur Awards recognises the city's top business founders who have contributed to economic prosperity, challenged the status quo or pioneered social change.
This is your chance to be a part of one of Australia's most prestigious business awards and collaborate with other game changers.
But we also aim to foster a community of emerging entrepreneurs and business leaders under the age of 40 who have built a thriving business, delivered innovation or have an idea that will change lives.
As part of this community, you'll become one of the influential cohort of young entrepreneurs who will have access to influential stakeholders in business and government.
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 Top 40 under 40 lists.
Nominations are now open for the 2018 Melbourne Young Entrepreneur Awards.
