Created in the United States in 1986, our Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year awards program has grown to more than 140 cities in 50 countries and territories, with awards presented to hundreds of the world’s most successful and innovative entrepreneurs.
Past winners have included business luminaries such as Mr. Michael Dell of Dell Computer, Mr. Mr. Howard Schultz of Starbucks, Mr. Pierre Omidyar of eBay, Mr. Richard Samuel Elman of Noble Group, Mr. Liu Yonghao of New Hope Group, Mr. Cho Tak Wong of Fuyao Glass Industry Group, Mr. Li Shufu of Zhejiang Geely Holding Group and Mr. Vincent Lo of Shui On Group.
The China program was launched in 2006 and has become a widely recognized awards program in the country that honors bold entrepreneurs who achieve success by combining ability and opportunity. The program rewards Chinese business people with their ideas, vision and energy to create positive changes in the Chinese economy.
The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year China awards is uniquely global. The 2012 country winner will go on to represent China at an international awards ceremony next year in Monte Carlo, Monaco, where he or she will compete for the prestigious title of Ernst & Young World Entrepreneur Of The Year.
Around 50 overall award winners from around the world will face a distinguished panel of judges, comprising past winners and business leaders, to determine who will be the undisputed global winner in 2013.
The program also represents a unique opportunity to network with business leaders from China and around the world through the Entrepreneur Of The Year Academy (EOY Academy). Closer to home, winners at the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year 2012 China awards will also gain exclusive membership to the China EOY Academy, comprising current and past winners from China.
The Academy aims to periodically organize social and business functions, such as conferences and seminars, luncheons and other social events for the benefit of its members. The EOY Academy is a forum for its members to build relationships, share ideas and generate new business opportunities through an unrivaled network of the world’s business elite.
