A breadth of experience
Judges at a regional and national level include former winners of Entrepreneur Of The Year, national and global business leaders, business investors and the leaders of social entrepreneurial organisations. The judges play an active role, offering advice and mentoring as well as judgement.

Judged by your contemporaries
EY Entrepreneur Of The Year is judged by your business peers, who understand the challenges you face because they have faced them too. By entering you join an influential business network where you will make new contacts and build new relationships.

A time to reflect
The judges receptions are an occasion where you can talk openly about your business with the country's top business leaders; discuss your business model; challenge your decisions; focus on your businesses objectives; and think about the possibilities for the future. The judging process provides you with a rare opportunity to reflect on your personal and business achievements.
