EY Entrepreneur Of The Year China

How the winners are chosen

  • Share

The judging panel comprises captains of industry and leaders in their professions or academia, as well as previous EOY winners. They themselves are chosen for their expertise and commitment to entrepreneurialism.

When all nominations are received, we undertake a thorough screening process beforehand, where the nominees are evaluated based on the information provided in the nomination form. We then meet with each nominee to gather additional information to help the evaluation process and submit the reports for the judges’ deliberation.

The independent panel of judges decides on the winners after undertaking a rigorous selection process.
