Calling all game changers

Sydney Young Entrepreneur Awards will showcase the city's next generation of business leaders, who have built a thriving business, delivered innovation, led social change or forged a path to turn their dream into reality.

The Sydney Young Entrepreneur Awards will launch in 2016, with the awards being announced early 2017.

Retail and Services
This category covers businesses in both the bricks and clicks space, recognising excellence in retail and retail services direct to the consumer.


Do you own a thriving restaurant, run a successful events company, or contribute to the Sydney's tourism industry? This section is dedicated to you.


Digital encompasses companies that have mastered digital marketing channels and are delivering services that significantly raise their client's profiles.


This category recognises companies providing innovative options in the IT and electronics space, changing how consumers operate.

Property and Construction

You only have to look at Sydney's ever-changing skyline to know the property sector means big business for the local economy.  If you are contributing to the development of the city, this category is for you.

Professional Services

Professionals across all disciplines including media, law, recruitment and accounting are given the opportunity to shine in this section.

Manufacturing, Wholesale and Distribution

This award is celebrating young entrepreneurs who are pushing above their weight in a sector that is seen as the backbone of the supply chain for the broader economy.

Marketing & Events

This category recognises companies that are forging creative and new ways to promote a product, service or event. Entrepreneurs who have made a name for themselves in raising profiles are encouraged to apply.

Social Entrepreneur

Are you solving social problems or effecting social change?  This category recognises young talent with innovative initiatives to some of society's most pressing social problems.


A Trailblazer is a special breed in business, someone who seriously has their finger on the pulse and adapts their business by will; not by force. This honour recognises a business that has seen exponential growth in their business and scope in a very short period and one that the judging panel believes will make a big name for itself. NOTE: those in the above categories will also be considered for this award.

Young Entrepreneur of the Year

All category winners will be up for the coveted Sydney Young Entrepreneur of the Year award.
