Entrepreneur Categories – Which one do I choose?
The Startup Entrepreneur of the Year is for entrepreneurs currently working full-time in their business and are not studying. Student Entrepreneur of the Year is for entrepreneurs still at or enrolled in high-school, TAFE or university, and are pursuing their entrepreneurial ventures in conjunction with their studies.

In each category, we’re looking for entrepreneurs with pioneering ideas and scalable business models. Most importantly, they need to be active in the market and have demonstrable revenue.


The criteria of this awards program has been inspired by similar entrepreneur award programs both domestic and abroad. The information you provide may be used to inform any articles published about you, should you be short-listed. So, get your facts right! Don’t reveal information you don’t want published. (And watch your spelling and grammar too please. It will make life easier for everyone.)

APPLICATIONS CLOSE MIDNIGHT March 20th 2017. Winners will be announced on March 22nd and will need to be available to accept the award at the Frankston Business Network’s event of that evening
