How We Created Our List

  • Entrepreneurs are under 40
  • They have overcome challenges, demonstrated true entrepreneurship or have broken away from a comfortable environment to pursue their career
  • Their business has shown tremendous growth in the last 12 months


Feedback From Judges

“This year group is very different to last year’s. Certainly last year was largely inspired by the outcome of covid, lockdown and the pandemic and this generated a lot of entrepreneurship. Many young people were finding new ideas and opportunities, especially in food and entertainment and others were furloughed and had the time to finally grow their side projects. A reminder that crisis can often bring out new opportunities and innovation.”

“We are always inspired by those that go out of their comfort zone and are willing to start a business they are passionate about from scratch. It takes guts in our community to branch out and sometimes give up a great job and salary to grow something new – and these successful entrepreneurs have done just that.”

The inspiration for the name Porto&Bello came from the port Alexia had been fitted that administered drugs during her treatment. The startup has even had interest from as far as Australia and Alexia is determined to find ways to get the products out to those needing it.
