The importance of entrepreneurship as a leading source of innovation, job creation and global economic growth is increasingly clear. By challenging orthodox methods and creating new markets for goods and services, high-growth entrepreneurs are positively disrupting the way we do business and enhancing our quality of life.

For more than 15 years, EY has been the world leader in advising, guiding and recognizing the best high-growth entrepreneurs and their companies through the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Program. We convene leading entrepreneurs, C-suite executives, and government leaders in Monaco each June for a week filled with actionable insights, curated private meetings and inspiring stories of achievement.

Who will inspire us next?

Join us 7-12 June 2016 for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Forum in Monaco and connect with the world's most inspiring entrepreneurs, business leaders and game changers from more than 60 countries.
