Nominating opens on 30 under 30


Nominations are now open for Cornwall’s 30 under 30 – a celebration of the Duchy’s brightest young business talent.

Now in their sixth year, the awards, which are organised by Cornwall Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Business Cornwall magazine, recognise 30 of the Duchy’s most innovative young businesspeople in Cornwall.

To be eligible for the award, 30 under 30 candidates must be employed, or self-employed, under the age of 30 on 1st June 2021 and living and working in Cornwall.

Nominations can come from friends, family, employer, colleagues or the individual themselves. The judges are looking for nominations that represent the true diversity Cornwall has to offer and the unique contribution these passionate and talented people are adding to the Duchy.

Judging the awards are Tom Moran, customer development manager at Truro & Penwith College, Business Cornwall publisher Toni Eyriey, Cornwall Chamber chief executive Kim Conchie, and Mark Peters, station director at Pirate FM.

Conchie said: “For many of our young businesspeople, this year has made them feel isolated and somewhat abandoned in terms of their personal development and career progression.

“That’s why I’m so excited to champion their brilliance and celebrate the fact we have these fantastic ambassadors for Cornish business in our midst.”

The 30 winners will appear in a special feature in Business Cornwall magazine. Nominations must be accompanied by a high-res photograph, and applications will close on April 26.

The 30 under 30 awards are sponsored by Truro & Penwith College and supported by Pirate FM.
