Deadline looms for 30 under 30


There is one week left to get nominations in for this year’s hotly-anticipated Cornwall’s 30 under 30 Awards.

Cornwall Chamber of Commerce, along with Business Cornwall magazine, Don’t Cry Wolf, Pirate FM and Truro & Penwith College are on the hunt for the Duchy’s brightest young business talent.

If you are a self-motivated, innovative entrepreneur, businessperson or professional making waves in Cornwall, then we want to hear from you.

Alternatively, you can nominate an outstanding member of your team, a friend that inspires you, or even a family member you know has worked tirelessly to get where they are today.

To be eligible for the award, 30 under 30 candidates must be employed, or self-employed, under the age of 30 on March 18 of this year and living and working in Cornwall.

Chamber chief executive, Kim Conchie, said: “I’m so excited to be warming up to our annual 30 under 30 Awards. It’s the event where we judge and meet some of Cornwall’s rising stars who inspire and engage the panel with their energy, knowledge, and enthusiasm.”

All nominees are encouraged to join Cornwall Chamber’s LinkedIn group Chamber Surge of Entrepreneurs. This group is here to support you through your 30 under 30 application. Being a member of the group will also give you access to new events and the opportunity to make important business connections.

The closing date for nominations is March 18. All applications need to be completed and sent to with a high-res image of the nominee before this date. The form can be found by clicking here.

The 2022 30 under 30 winners will be announced in the May issue of Business Cornwall magazine and the awards ceremony will be on June 17, during the Cornwall Festival of Business.

Best of luck everybody!
