One Young World’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2019


Application Deadline: 19 May 2019 6pm BST

One Young World’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award has been created to identify and promote 5 of the world’s most revolutionary entrepreneurs under 35 who are having a positive global impact and inspiring others with their leadership.

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.

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.

The One Young World
Entrepreneur Award was created to highlight the work of revolutionary
entrepreneurs who will stand as inspiration for existing entrepreneurs
and encourage others to become effective entrepreneurs.

The 5
entrepreneurs identified will receive the Award at the One Young World
2019 Summit in London, which takes place from 22nd -25th October. The
ceremony will take place in front of an audience of 2000 people from
over 190 countries and live streamed to an audience of  2 million in
over 100 countries.
