Young Entrepreneur of the Year

We are looking for an outstanding young entrepreneur working and living in NH, between the ages of 18 and 40. NH’s economy is shaped by the health of a growing business community. This award is for someone who looked outside the box, started something new, opened your favorite coffee shop on the corner, or is the CEO of the hottest new tech company on the block.

A panel of judges representing Stay Work Play, the Alpha Loft, start-ups, venture capitalists, and business and community leaders from across the state will select the award recipient.

The winner of this award will receive a $500 stipend. We want to honor the work that these young entrepreneurs have done in and for NH and give them something they can use to continue their hard work and efforts. With the Young Entrepreneur of the Year, the intention is that the $500 be used in the winner’s entrepreneurial venture, for membership in a professional organization, leadership program, attendance at a conference, or something specifically entrepreneurially-related.
