These annual awards recognize 40 individuals making a difference in West Michigan. Since 2002, the Grand Rapids Business Journal has recognized over 300 dynamic young professionals who have achieved personal success, demonstrated business leadership, and made significant civic contributions to our community.
Each October, the high-profile event is attended by hundreds of corporate, business, community and government leaders. The honorees will also be featured in a special publication this October that will be included in an issue of the Business Journal and viewable online. Full details on the 2017 event will be announced soon.
To nominate a local business leader for consideration, use this form. Your nominee must be under 40 years old as of October 16, 2017. The Business Journal will then contact the nominee and provide them with the formal application for them to complete and submit.
