The awards ceremony, in association with Coutts, will shine a light on a collection of young entrepreneurs with exciting, high potential companies as voted for by Britain's most influential business owners, from Dragon Peter Jones to Betfair co-founder Ed Wray.
Julie Meyer nominated Peter Janes, who at 26 had founded The Post Network, providing sports, music and film fans with independent social sharing platforms where they can air their views in an unrestricted, fun and exciting environment. The Post Network entertained more than 11 million fans a month and was successfully sold in May 2011.
Peter founded his second tech startup shopa.com a year later. Shopa is the world's first social shopping platform and payment mechanism, giving financial rewards to people who recommend products to their networks and friends.
Shopa.com has already formed a technical partnership with PayPal and Ebay Inc.
As a young CEO, Peter has also managed to raise more than £4m of funding for his successful ventures.
Julie also cited her reason for nominating Peter. "He has built and sold a business to the Russians, and now he's doing it again. He's managed to get his second business, social shopping network shopa.com, up and running in a difficult market, and it's a great concept. Fantastic for someone of such a young age."
