Gold Coast Business News


Gold Coast Business News is currently searching for the city's most ambitious entrepreneurs who are carving out their own unique place in the business community.

We are interested in the game changers who are spectacularly disrupting the market, riding on stellar success, or even just starting out with big dreams but an even greater determination to make these come alive. The criterion for nomination is that the entrepreneur founded their business, is the owner-operator, are based on the Gold Coast, and under 40.

Nominees will be given the opportunity to gain exposure through the Gold Coast Business News website, our special annual Young Entrepreneur edition of Gold Coast Business News magazine, and attend one of the Gold Coast’s landmark calendar events, the Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur Awards. The 2014 winners will be crowned at a gala event complete with a three-course meal and entertainment by local deep house act Gas Grooves held at Jupiters Casino on the evening of Friday 24 October.

For the first time, we have extended the awards to give local entrepreneurs a greater opportunity for formal recognition. We have broadened the scope to reflect the diverse nature of the region’s economy and business scene. It also highlights that entrepreneurs are in special leagues of their own, trying their hands at innovating traditional industries, as well as risking to create new markets entirely. Gold Coast Business News, published by Business News Australia, is now inviting nominations for the below award categories for its prestigious Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur Awards:


The ever-changing technology sector has generated some of the most exciting stories among young entrepreneurs, and this category will be one of the most closely watched by all businesses looking to keep abreast of that change.


Lateral thinkers are encouraged to enter this category which cuts across all sectors of business to recognise growth through innovation.


If your business is in this category, chances are you are flying under the radar. This award is looking for 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.


Professionals across all disciplines, including law, medical, engineering and architecture, are given the opportunity to shine in this category.


The growth of the property sector in recent years has given way to a new breed of young entrepreneurs. This category will introduce a range of new players and some established players achieving excellence in their respective fields.


This category covers businesses in both the bricks and clicks space, recognising excellence in retail and retail services direct to the consumer - either online or through traditional store models - as well as cutting-edge retail concepts.


This award recognises successful business owners who are juggling entrepreneurship with tertiary studies.


The resurgence of the tourism sector has given rise to this new category which encompasses businesses operating across this dynamic sector of the economy.
