Pearcey Vic Awards

Recognising and celebrating great Entrepreneurs in Victoria

The Pearcey Victorian Entrepreneur Award is presented to an outstanding individual who has "taken a risk, made a difference and is an inspiration to others" in the Victorian ICT industry.

The process draws on nominations from the public and the Pearcey Foundation network. Selection is made in consultation with past award recipients to ensure the continued integrity and quality of this peer based recognition.

Nominations can be received at any time.

The 2022 Pearcey Victorian Entrepreneur Award was held on 21st September at Melbourne Connect in conjunction with the Pearcey Oration.

The Pearcey Foundation very much appreciates the generous support by the Victorian Government over many years.

Since 2016, the presentation of Victorian Pearcey Award has been proudly part of the Victorian Government's Digital Innovation Festival (DIF).
