Now in its second year, BRW’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award is open for nominations.
To be considered, nominees must be directly involved in an innovative business that has been successfully running for a minimum of three years.
Nominees can be drawn from any sector of the economy but will need to be able to demonstrate innovation in terms of product development, service delivery or fulfilment and be able to clearly state how their business has changed the market.
Nominations must include market share, customer base, industry influence and any alliances, as well as examples of the nominee’s entrepreneurial attributes.
The judges will take particular note of performance, entrepreneurship and innovation during the current financial year and in some cases nominees will be required to provide additional information as part of the judging process.
If selected as a finalist, nominees must be willing to provide revenue and profit growth for the previous two financial years, as well as current year targets.
Successful finalists will need to be available to travel to Sydney at their own expense to attend an interview with the judging panel on March 1, 2012.
The 2012 Entrepreneur of the Year winner and finalists will be profiled in the March 29 edition of BRW
