The Entrepreneur Of The Year program, founded by EY, has recognized the endeavors of exceptional men and women who create the products and services that keep our worldwide economy moving forward.
Since its inception, Entrepreneur Of The Year has grown dramatically and now includes programs in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries worldwide. The Entrepreneur Of The Year US Awards gala is the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum, the largest gathering of entrepreneurs in America.
Now in its 35th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year® program celebrates the unstoppable entrepreneurs whose unbounded ambitions deliver innovation, growth and prosperity that transform our world.
• Recognized as one of the most prestigious business award programs in the country, the Entrepreneur Of The Year® Awards celebrate the country’s most innovative business leaders. Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winners join an esteemed, lifelong community of transformative luminaries from around the world.
• Participation in the awards process elevates your company’s brand awareness through exposure to entrepreneurs, sponsors, judges and guests, many of whom may be seeking customers, alliances, M&A or other growth opportunities. The program credentials you to investors, employees and customers, and gives you the opportunity to celebrate achievements and publicly recognize the contributions of the team who made it all possible.
• Entrepreneur Of The Year finalists and winners receive publicity in and beyond their communities, which contributes to valuable network-building. It is not just an award — it is an ongoing community of leadership through access to alumni events, our vast entrepreneurial ecosystem, the EY NextGen Academy for family enterprises, leading advisors, speaking engagements, media profiles and interviews and more.
