30 Under 30 2017 Nomination

You can nominate anyone who resides and works in B.C. and was born after April 1, 1987 (yes, we feel old, too). We're looking for people who are excelling professionally—innovating in their industry, making competitors nervous and generally changing the world. But we also want those with hearts of gold—giving back to people and the planet. Ultimately we want to hear about big brains and big hearts and how this rare combination is raising the profile of business in our province.The nomination process is simple and free: just fill in the fields below and submit. 

DEADLINE: November 13, 2016 @ 11:59 p.m.

Winning Tip: When you type in your description (300 words or less) of the nominee please remember to describe what his/her business is, how the company works, how it has grown since inception and why this person deserves to be considered as one of our Top 30 Under 30. This is the important part because it's your sales pitch that gets your nomination to the next round. Get specific with recent accomplishments. General praise like "because she's awesome" will not do.

Entry Deadline 13 Nov, 2016
