Nor-Shipping 2021 and YoungShip showcase new generation of talent with Young Entrepreneur Award

YoungShip will head the awards jury, giving careful consideration to a diverse range of nominees drawn from around the world. Entrants should demonstrate an ability to turn challenges into maritime business opportunities, create jobs, enhance efficiency, adopt best practices and address sustainability issues. More details and a call for entries will be announced shortly. The winners will be promoted through both Nor-Shipping and YoungShip’s extensive industry networks, while also receiving exposure with space in Nor-Shipping’s Blue Economy Hall in Lillestrøm during the main Your Arena for Ocean Solutions exhibition, running from 1-4 June.

Accelerating development

“Young entrepreneurs are key to helping maritime navigate future challenges and opportunities, but they need the right platforms to showcase their talent, ambition and breakthrough innovations,” says Eleanor Scudder, Secretary General, YoungShip International. “YEA gives them the head start they deserve.

“Given the challenges we’re facing we can’t afford to stick to ‘business as usual’ and established ways of thinking – we need bold people, with bold ideas, and that is the essence of this award. Here at YoungShip we’re thrilled to continue our support of this important initiative. We have no idea who the winner will be, but we do know they’ll get a unique opportunity to accelerate their development.”
