The Hunter Young Business Minds Awards (HYBMA) was inaugurated in 2017. Aiming to create a program to connect and energise the next generation of creators, innovators, entrepreneurs and business leaders (NextGen) in our region, it was driven by business leaders who saw the importance of building greater relationships and connections between industry, business, educators, parents and young people.
Supported by the Department of Employment and Workforce Relations through their Hunter Futurepreneurs Program, HYBMA aims to provide unique, practical learning and personal development experiences by creating an innovative CoLab environment where NextGen leaders take control and are supported, encouraged, and mentored to deliver the program outcomes and results.
Our Management Committee is made up of experienced members of the business community. Their combined skills and experience include every aspect of working in organisations at management and board level, within government, industry, corporate, small business and start-up enterprises.
