Young Entrepreneur Australia 2020
The country's most prestigious business awards.
A nationwide cohort of contenders vying for the Australian Young Entrepreneur of the Year title. It doesn't get better than this.
This is a night to celebrate the success of young founders who are in the driver's seat of Australia's most exciting businesses.
Entrepreneurs from around the country will converge at the gala event. They will meet peers who share the same strain of passion, eye for innovation and desire to leave a legacy. This stellar group is the one you will want to keep your eyes on.
At Business News Australia. we have been at the forefront of unearthing inspiring and influential entrepreneurs for over a decade. This year is no different.
Each of the incredible finalists will be up for inclusion in the exclusive Top 100 Young Entrepreneur list to be published later this year.
Our goal is to support emerging entrepreneurs and business leaders with official recognition for their efforts, to provide them with ongoing support and business connections. Quite simply, our mission is to shine a light on Australia's best and brightest.
"I firmly believe every person should try and start a business by the time they are 30.
Everyone seems to aspire to work for someone, but really, we are all potential entrepreneurs.
The size or success of the venture isn't anywhere near as important as the business skills and life lessons you take away from it."
Bevan Slattery, founder of Superloop (ASX: SLC), Megaport (ASX: MP1), NEXTDC (ASX: NXT) Pipe Networks and SubPartners.
