Entrepreneur of the Year Award: Supported by TFG Asset Management

TFGAM logo


The rates of global unemployment, the catastrophic effects of climate change, and the challenges of globalisation all pose significant problems. The skills of young entrepreneurs, equipped with rapid technological advancements, are overcoming these barriers around the world.

At the heart of every start-up or enterprise is the drive to solve the problem. One Young World believes that the next generation of young entrepreneurs are here to do more than create the next convenient solution - they are here to take on the world’s major challenges.

One Young World’s Entrepreneur of the Year was created in 2019 to identify and promote the world’s most revolutionary entrepreneurs under 35 who are having a positive global impact and inspiring others with their leadership. 

We are delighted to launch our the Entrepreneur of the Year Award for 2024, supported again this year by TFG Asset Management. The award will be presented to the three winners at the One Young World Summit in Montréal (Tiohtià:ke), Canada, which takes place from 18-21 September 2024.

The award winners will be selected by an international panel of judges with first-hand experience of entrepreneurship. They will be seeking the most innovative entrepreneurs who are creating a positive global impact and inspiring others with their leadership.

Applications and nominations for the 2024 award are now closed.
