Young Entrepreneur Award

Business Action Awards 2020 | North Devon's independent business awards | Young Entrepreneur Award

The business world is changing faster than ever before which makes it more difficult for young people to predict how their careers can develop. The small population in a large geographical area also limits the number of opportunities available to young people.

The Young Enterprise Award is open to any North Devon business owner or director aged 30 years or under on 31 March 2020.
