Honoring world-class entrepreneurs for 29 years

The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year (EOY) awards program is the premier mark of world-class individuals leading world-class companies. It is a competitive award with an independently-governed judging panel and a precise due diligence process that positions it above all others. It recognizes leaders who are driving successful, innovative businesses and celebrates their exemplary performance.

Through the program, applicants can leverage new business, expand networks, broaden and diversify their public relations and media opportunities, and meet hard-to-reach peers with a wealth of knowledge to share.

There are 25 regional programs. All winners are crowned in June and move forward to compete for national EY Entrepreneur Of The Year in November.
