Liddle says he’s very pleased with the list, describing it as a good cross-section of the different industries and styles of business, and is confident it will inspire budding entrepreneurs.


“The submissions we received to be part of the delegation, and the quality of those chosen, shows there is a great platform in Australia to encourage entrepreneurial thinking among young Australians,” Liddle says.


“There are still many barriers that governments need to remove if Australia is really able to embrace the innovative thinking that younger people can bring, to enhance the social and economic fabric of this country.


“The delegation will be learning from best practices around the world during the G20 YEA summit to help our governments and business leaders implement policies and strategies to harness young entrepreneurialism.”


According to Sarah Rieglehuth, who directs Wealth Enhancers alongside her fiancé and fellow delegate Finn Kelly, being part of the G20 YEA Summit is a “a real privilege”.


In addition to heading up Wealth Enhancers, Rieglehuth is the co-founder of The League of Extraordinary Women, a group for female entrepreneurs.


“Both Finn and I are excited to be given the opportunity to contribute to the discussion on improving and fostering entrepreneurship around the world,” Rieglehuth said in a statement.
