Splice Marketing founder and director of marketing Ellie Bakker has been named the Moreton Bay Region’s Think2Be Entrepreneur of the Year.

Accepting the award at the 2022 Moreton Bay Business and Innovation Awards on Friday night, Ellie paid tribute to her team of 20, describing them as “absolutely incredible”.

There were 68 finalists and the winners were decided by a panel of 44 judges from a mix of public and private sector organisations from across South East Queensland.

The 2022 Moreton Bay Business and Innovation Awards were presented by Moreton Bay Regional Council and delivered by Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT).

The Entrepreneur of the Year award recognises and celebrates an enterprising individual, either a founder or owner of a business, who adopts new or innovative ideas to generate a new product, service, business process or enter a new market.

North Lakes-based Splice Marketing is a healthcare marketing agency, focused on improving people’s lives by ethically marketing medical devices and technologies, health and wellness businesses, and health non-profits.

Top tips

Asked about her number one tip for anyone wanting to start a business, Ellie had this to say: “Just dive in – there’s never a good time to start, so just get started”.

She said the Moreton Bay Region was the perfect place to be in business.

“Really tap into the community, there’s so much support here, so much energy and so many events.

“Reach out to people, connect on LinkedIn, go to events in Moreton Bay and you’ll really succeed in business because everyone’s here to support everyone.”

Ellie said she was shocked to be crowned Entrepreneur of the Year.

“I’m so proud to win this award.

“It’s been a crazy five years in business."
