About the Awards
With Western Australia’s rapid economic growth and now stabilisation, entrepreneurs and innovators are more important to Western Australia’s economic climate than ever.
Business people that bring fresh, new ideas to either new or existing corporations are essential for ensuring Western Australia’s economy doesn’t take a dip following such rapid growth.

and introducing our newest category:
