If you have a vision, are entrepreneurial, or have worked on a great technology solution, here’s what you need to do.
You need to take some time off to nominate yourselves (or someone you know that fits the bill) for the start-up category of ARN’s inaugural Emerging Leaders awards.
An emerging leader demonstrates the potential to assume a mid-to-high level leadership role. In start-ups, they are often entrepreneurs who are highly innovative or technology leaders with management and business acumen potential.
The ARN Emerging Leader in a start-up company award recognises risk-taking and entrepreneurship. The award salutes individuals from small to mid-sized start-ups (less than 5 years) and celebrates their successes, innovation, initiatives, and growth.
Nominating yourself or your fellow peers will give you some free publicity, mentorship possibilities from Australia's greatest ICT entrepreneurs, and perhaps, it might even result in some investor interest.
Emerging Leaders should demonstrate qualities of high potential individuals poised to progress their ICT careers to C-level. Categories will be judged by the Emerging Leaders judging panel.
Winners will each receive a certificate of excellence, in addition to a mentorship with an ARN Hall of Fame inductee.
Emerging Leaders can self-nominate or be nominated by a colleague. Winners will be announced at the Emerging Leaders Forum, which will be hosted as a half-day event on Tuesday, May 17, at Ivy Sunroom in Sydney.
