This year Upstart is thrilled to have sponsored the Young Entrepreneur category in the 2019 City of Ballarat Youth Awards!

It was a wonderful evening, with over 450 people attending to celebrate the 87 amazing nominees.  There were 99 nominations across 11 categories, with all nominees eligible for Major Awards.

Congratulations to the 2019 Young Entrepreneur of the Year Jake Sbardella!

Approximately 20,000 12 – 25 year olds call Ballarat home. The City of Ballarat Youth Awards provides the community with an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the city’s young people who volunteer and contribute to their community.
