EY Entrepreneur Of The Year China
About the awards
The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year awards program is one of the world’s most prestigious business accolades for entrepreneurs. Recognized globally, the awards honor the entrepreneurs who most inspire others with their vision, leadership and achievements.
Created in the United States in 1986, our EY Entrepreneur Of The Year (EOY) awards program has grown to more than 145 cities in 60 countries and regions, with awards presented to more than one thousand of the most successful and innovative entrepreneurs in the world. Past winners have included business luminaries such as Michael Dell of Dell Computer, Howard Schultz of Starbucks and Pierre Omidyar of eBay.
Unlike business awards, which take place at a local or national level, the EOY national winners will go on to represent their countries at an international awards ceremony that celebrates their leadership and accomplishments. In all, over 50 national award winners from around the world will face a distinguished panel of judges, comprising past winners and business leaders to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year (WEOY) award.
The China program, launched in 2006, has become a widely recognized award in China that honors bold entrepreneurs who achieve success by combining ability with opportunity. In particular, the program recognises the benefits that entrepreneurs and their entrepreneurial spirit bring to the economy of China, by creating employment opportunities and enhancing the competitiveness of Chinese enterprises. Past winners included Richard Samuel Elman of Noble Group, Liu Yonghao of New Hope Group, Cho Tak Wong of Fuyao Glass Industry Group, Li Shufu of Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, Vincent Lo of Shui On Group, Terry Sio of Rainbow Group, Ma Weihua of Wing Lung Bank Ltd and Xiu Laigui of Xiuzheng Pharmaceutical Group. Of this group, Cho Tak Wong went on to be named the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year 2009.
EY is pleased to announce the launch of the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015 China awards program. The 2015 country winners will go on to represent China at an international awards ceremony next year, where they will compete for the prestigious title of EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year.
