Aristidis Tsoulakos nominated for the 2022 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards


Aristidis Tsoulakos from Victoria has been nominated for the Qoin Small Business Achiever Award in the 2022 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards.

The 21-year-old has always had an entrepreneurial spark from a young age. Throughout his schooling years he founded a creative business selling Christmas decorations and later other handmade craft items.

Now, he’s the Founder of Fos Candle & Co, where he makes toxin-free candles out of locally sourced Victorian beeswax honeycomb.

“The driving factor for this venture was to provide people with a safe and natural alternative product to burn in their homes and most importantly of better quality being free from toxins,” Mr Tsoulakos explained.

If Mr Tsoulakos wins his category in the Awards, he will be able to expand his business using the $500 cash prize, $500 in Qoin and a complimentary 6 month membership to The Impact Collective valued at $2,090. He will also receive a trophy.

One of the category winners will be chosen as the 2022 Victorian Young Achiever of the Year and will receive a state trophy.

Finalists will be presented and winners announced at an Awards Gala Presentation Dinner on Friday, April 29 at the Sofitel Melbourne On Collins.
