One Young World is delighted to announce the winners of the inaugural One Young World Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
Created to identify and promote the world’s most revolutionary entrepreneurs, the Award honours five young leaders –aged 35 and under – who have been judged on the positive social impact of their business ventures and how they are transforming the way we work, learn, live and eat. These five young leaders were selected by a panel of respected international business figures from a shortlist of 20 young entrepreneurs from around the world.
Marisa Drew, Judge and CEO of the Impact Advisory and Finance (IAF) Department of Credit Suisse commenting on the Award, “It has been such an inspiration to witness the incredible creativity, entrepreneurial spirit and real impact that this group have demonstrated with the businesses that they have created. These entrepreneurs have found new, underserved or poorly-served markets and have come up with innovative ways to deploy their talents toward creating businesses with the ability to scale and become the disruptors in their field.”
The winners will be presented with the Award at the One Young World 2019 Summit taking place in London, 22 -25 October.
