Pause Awards 2020
AWARDING THE FUTURE BUILDERS
This is what we believe in: the old mindset and ways of working will not change unless we celebrate our future builders. Therefore we're bringing back the Pause Awards. Now in its third year and going regional including New Zealand, the Pause Awards is an exclusive competition that honours the impact brought by the intersection of creativity, tech and business – where the innovation happens!
Pause Awards champion people in the startup, scaleup and big businesses that not only go the extra mile but are also entrepreneurial, driven by purpose, plugged in the community and are aware of the impact they are making in the world and their business. The awards are the extension of Pause Fest, the world’s leading festival for business and creativity. Pause Fest is an independent, industry-driven movement with a mission to bring diverse intelligence together to fuel the next generation forward. We’ve been described as 'Innovation Capital', 'Octoberfest for business' and 'Woodstock for digital natives’.
You may enter as an individual or as a company. Winners and nominees will be recognised for their impact in the industry and community across twelve categories. And we've added one more - The Hall of Fame Award, which will be given to the trailblazer who pushed the ecosystem forward.
Here are the top benefits. And we have prizes too (see below).
- Be reviewed by global industry experts.
- Get invited to speak at Pause Fest.
- Challenge yourself – compete with the best in class.
- Build credibility, be seen and recognised for your impact.
- Extend your network and get new business!
Pause Awards champion people in the startup, scaleup and big businesses that not only go the extra mile but are also entrepreneurial, driven by purpose, plugged in the community and are aware of the impact they are making in the world and their business. All industries may apply.
