The Entrepreneur Of The Year® (EOY) awards programme was created in the United States in a single Midwestern city by EY in 1986 to honor entrepreneurs whose ingenuity and perseverance have created and sustained successful, growing business ventures.

This year EOY is celebrating its 27th anniversary. In those years, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program has expanded to more than 145 cities in 60 countries with awards presented annually to over 900 of the world’s most successful and innovative entrepreneurs.

Launched in New Zealand in 1998, the Entrepreneur Of The Year programme is conducted annually culminating in a national awards programme.  The New Zealand Entrepreneur Of The Year winner, announced at the national awards, goes on to represent New Zealand at the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards in Monte Carlo.
