Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards
CELEBRATING THE GOLD COAST'S BUDDING STARS
The 2013 Business News Publications’ Young Entrepreneur Awards will showcase the city’s next generation of clever and ambitious business leaders at The Arts Centre Gold Coast on November 22.
Queensland’s premier business and custom magazine publisher, Business News Publications, is again inviting nominations for its prestigious Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur Awards.
Business owners operating in the Gold Coast region, and aged 40 or under in 2013, now have their chance to be acclaimed as one of the glitter strip’s top young entrepreneurs.
The overall winner will be crowned Gold Coast’s Young Entrepreneur for 2013, and profiled in a cover story in our November issue of Gold Coast Business News.
The runner-up and trail-blazer will also receive prestigious trophies while all finalists will be profiled in that edition.
The 2012 Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award winner, Randall Deer of Ignite Travel Group, used his savings of $50,000 to build an international marketing empire, covering Broadbeach, Sydney, New Zealand and South Africa.
The company, formerly known as RewardsCorp, also clinched the award for Deer in 2011. The rebranded business sustained a 63 per cent growth in revenue to almost $62 million in FY12.
Gold Coast Business News will unearth the city’s top 2013 young entrepreneurs at a gala award luncheon
on Friday November 22 with special guest speaker Mark Sowerby, founder and managing director of Blue Sky Alternative Investments.
Sowerby established the Blue Sky Group in 2006 as a private equity house investing expansion capital into Australian small to medium-sized businesses. Since then, he has expanded Blue Sky’s suite of investment opportunities across a broad spectrum of asset classes, including private equity, hedge funds, private real estate, and water assets. Blue Sky was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange in January 2012 (ASX:BLA) and is Australia’s first diversified alternative asset manager with more than $300 million of assets under management.
Sowerby will share his journey of building his business and taking it public as well as his experience of growing a business through private equity.
