Passion, vision, achievement. Sound like someone you know in your community?

EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year is considered the world’s most prestigious business award with a lifelong network of gravity-defying entrepreneurs.

Each spring, the business community comes together to celebrate regional semifinalists, finalists and winners. These honorees not only create and build market-leading businesses, but also help take the standard of excellence to new heights, transform the face of industry, create jobs and contribute to the vibrancy of communities.

The New York program includes the entire state of New York. We've participated in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® program since 1986 and have had many of our regional winners go on to win national awards. One New York award recipient, Howard Lutnick of  Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners, Inc. was named Entrepreneur Of The Year for the US in 2010.  Click here to learn more about benefits of participation in this exciting program.
