South Australia’s 40 Under 40 were announced in front of a crowd of more than 300 at the Adelaide Convention Centre last night, and there were two Greek Australians among the award recipients.

They are: CEO of Lumin Sports / Hoap, Ben Tripodi, and Co-Founder and Managing Director of Never Never Distilling Co., George Georgiadis.

Tripodi and Georgiadis were both recognised in the 40 Under 40 list, which celebrates the state’s young business leaders and entrepreneurs.

Georgiadis also received the Creative Thinker Award which was presented by KWP!

The night itself was a huge success, with a number of special guests in attendance including South Australia Governor, Hieu Van Le AC, and the Leader of the Opposition, Peter Malinauskas MP.

In a speech, the chair of the judging panel, David Rohrsheim, told the award winners and guests that he was impressed with the quality of the more than 230 applicants to the awards and how much each one of them had achieved.

“Adelaide sometimes can be a ‘wait your turn’ sort of place,” said the manager of the SA Venture Capital Fund Portfolio, who is also young enough to qualify for the awards.

“This is a room that knows that tomorrow will not be a better time to pursue their dreams.”

Congratulations to all the award recipients!
