young talents

Young entrepreneurs are rising. More young people are turning to running their own business to find a fulfilling career.

The EPIC Awards is our platform to celebrate and recognize the achievements of young people, especially those who have faced adversity and/or the care of a local authority, to become a startup business.

Nominations for this year’s entries have now closed. Our judging panel will be convening in July to sort through the entries. Shortlisted nominees will be notified by the end of July. 

Tickets are now on sale for our awards event, taking place on 15th September from 6.30pm onwards at BGF Offices, Bull Street, Birmingham. The evening is a chance to hear from the young people and their stories, network with like-minded businesses, and enjoy some fabulous Harlem-inspired food from our restaurant, Holy Moly!
