Celebrating Brisbane's business community

THE 2014 Brisbane Young Entrepreneur Awards will showcase the city’s next generation of successful and ambitious business leaders.

Queensland’s premier business and custom magazine publisher, Business News Publications, will soon invite nominations for its prestigious Brisbane Young Entrepreneur Awards.

Business owners operating in the greater Brisbane area, and aged 40 or under in 2014, can have their chance to be acclaimed as one of the river city’s top young entrepreneurs.

The overall winner is crowned at an awards ceremony and profiled in a cover story in Brisbane Business News, along with the runner-up and winner of the trailblazer award.

Anthony Yap and Hanh Luu, founders of Good Price Pharmacy, took out the title of 2013 Brisbane Young Entrepreneur for the second year in a row.

The empire has been carefully built since 2001, achieving double-digit growth each year - to approximately $207 million in revenue in 2013.

"You need to recognise your limitations as you cannot do everything yourself, and surround yourself with people who have the skills to get the job done.

"The three key ingredients that we have found to help our success - passion, persistence and most importantly people," says Yap.

The highly commended award went to Phillip Di Bella, founder of Di Bella Coffee.

Di Bella has managed to create and maintain a brand that stays ahead of consumer needs, seeing 19 per cent growth to $35 million in revenue last year.

Leigh Storr from BioSolar was recognised as a trailblazer in the community, overcoming a tough first year in business and achieving $34 million in revenue.

Last year's diverse group of 20 finalists turn over more than $350 million annually combined, making a significant contribution to the state's economy.

Nominations will open in July 2014, please check back here for more details.
