I am honoured to welcome you to the inaugural 2021 Innov8 Awards.


This is the year we unveil our unique and innovative, transcontinental and global small business awards. Original and creative in thinking; the Innov8 Awards are for national and global small business services and product designers, who seek recognition for their innovative ideas and products. I encourage you to enter one of our fifty categories. 

The significance of 2021 as the launch year, is one of inspiration. This unique production, welcomes small businesses and those who aspire to a pathway in commercial enterprise, to enter these exciting and unique awards, born by motivation to move forward and celebrate our achievements and successes against all odds.

I am privileged and enormously proud to unveil the Innov8 Awards and look forward to watching its growth each year, as it evolves into one of the nation’s valued initiatives, emerging from such a year of uncertainty.

The success of this creation would not be possible without our bright entrants, passionate judges and generous sponsors, whose patronage and pledge are greatly appreciated.

The Innov8 Awards have been created with the desire to take your dreams from your spare moments into reality and onto a path of commercial enterprise.

If you’re an owner and manager of an Australian small business or a women’s global small business, you deserve to be admired and recognised for your ability and true grit.

To promote and expand the growth of our future entrepreneurs, the addition of six exciting Australian Wool Designer’s Categories and three exclusive Australian University Student categories in Engineering, Creative Design and Agriculture have been welcomed. We wish to acknowledge these innovators and creators.  

This wonderful nation relies on small businesses contributing to the vitality of our communities, building economic diversity and prosperity for our future generations. 

“Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.” – Ralph Waldo Emmerson
