The awards organiser

The backbone of the national economy — micro, small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) — and the passionate owners behind these operations rely on MyBusiness for insights, motivation, professional development, training, inspiration and information for building better businesses.

Since its launch in the 1990s, MyBusiness has been synonymous with the development of the Australian SME sector, which today accounts for over 2 million businesses employing around 5 million Australians.

SMEs connect with the brand across a range of mediums, from the sell-out MyBusiness Awards each year through to its knowledge centre, live web streams, professional development, podcasts, broadcasts and the daily information platform,

Momentum Media is the custodian of MyBusiness, having acquired the brand in 2016. The acquisition represented the culmination of a strategic plan to enter the SME market, with the brand growing rapidly since – serving SMEs, in the good times and bad, with timely and accurate analysis of the issues impacting the Australian economy… and empowering their ability to trade.

Momentum Media is driven to create Australia’s most influential media and professional development business across the markets we operate in.

Our events business is recognised as one of the best in Australia, with a number of our awards programs securing national accolades.

Our programs include the Australian Law Awards, the Australian Broking Awards, the Australian Accounting Awards, the Australian Defence Industry Awards, the Women in Finance Awards and the REB Awards. For more details, visit our website here.

With a reach spanning over a million professionals, high-net-worth individuals and SME business owners, Momentum Media is connected to the rapidly changing preferences and attitudes of our communities – and we’re making a positive contribution for them to thrive.

Momentum Media’s suite of brands helps shape the direction of corporate Australia through delivering market intelligence, news, insights, leadership and knowledge across key market segments – ensuring organisations and individuals are better informed.

Whether it’s defence, national security and space through to mortgages, financial advice, legal or accounting, our aim is to be peerless and to excel in all facets of our business.

This vision empowers Momentum to set the standard that other media businesses admire and seek to emulate.

And there’s a good reason why Momentum remains one of the fastest growing media businesses in Australia: we do media our way.

We’re a trailblazing business that relishes challenge, change and opportunity. We’re not shackled to any form of communication and are driven by delivering essential content and intelligence to our audiences via the channels that they choose.
