These awards serve as a platform to honour the remarkable stories of entrepreneurs who have overcome challenges, demonstrated resilience, and make significant contributions to their communities.

The Equity-Backed Entrepreneurs category acknowledges the remarkable contributions of individuals who have forged thriving businesses through the support of investors. This category underscores the pivotal role that investor backing plays in fostering entrepreneurial success, emphasising the symbiotic relationship between innovative visionaries and the financial support necessary for transformative ideas to flourish.

The Purpose Entrepreneurs category holds significance as it spotlights individuals who have chosen to weave a strong sense of purpose into the fabric of their entrepreneurial journey. Purpose Entrepreneurs are distinguished by their unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on society. This recognition celebrates their exceptional achievements, highlighting the transformative influence that purpose-driven entrepreneurship can exert on the industry and business community as a whole.
