40 Under Forty Niagara
Business Link Media Group is hosting our 20th Annual 40 Under Forty Business Achievement Awards. This awards banquet and ceremony gives back to the Niagara Region by identifying outstanding individuals and businesses that contribute positively to the growth and development of our community. To date we have recognized the successes of 750+ business leaders across the Niagara region.
In 2023, 40 more individuals under the age of 40 who make significant positive contributions to the local economy, community, and business ecosystem will be recognized and awarded for their excellence. In addition, all attendees will be provided with valuable networking time and sponsorship opportunities to boost their business and personal profiles.
Our event is an opportunity for the next generation of business and community leaders to receive recognition, network with important stakeholders, and be better prepared to pave the way for Niagara’s growth and prosperity in the near and distant future. This event has become one of the foundational pillars of the Niagara Region and Community, and its success is rooted in the participation of attendees and sponsors.
40 Under Forty Hamilton
Business Link Media Group first established its 40 Under Forty Business Achievement Awards back in 2014, one of Hamilton's most prestigious awards.
With its 40 Under Forty Business Achievement Awards program, Business Link Media Group takes great pride in promoting award-winners as role models to their fellow business professionals and to the community at large.
Each year, nominated individuals are given close consideration by a distinguished panel of local business leaders and past award recipients. This panel takes several criteria into account to determine the final 40 award recipients. These criteria include:
~ An uncommon level of accomplishment in their field or industry.
~ A demonstration of leadership and innovation with their business or workplace.
~ An ability to overcome obstacles and achieve results.
~ An active involvement in their industry and/or community.
~ A commitment to constant improvement.
