Celebrating the passion, vision and achievements of South Australia’s young entrepreneurs and business leaders.

About the program

Leadership and entrepreneurial thinking is more important than ever in these uncertain times. That’s why we are looking for 40 leaders under the age of 40 from across all industries and sectors. The 40 work in startups, not for profits and large corporations – anywhere really – but they are united in their passion for South Australia.

Begun in 2018, the awards have grown into an anticipated event in South Australia, with more than 200 applicants vying for the 40 places each year. Past winners also become part of an influential alumni group that meets regularly to network and socialise.

The 40 Under 40 Awards are open to business owners and executives / professionals who have made an impact for South Australia and are under the age of 40 as at 1 July each year.
