Do I have to pay a fee to participate in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year awards?
Unlike some awards where participants are required to pay a fee for their application to be processed, the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year awards does not charge a fee on participants.
Who can be nominated?
To be an eligible nominee, the person must be an owner - manager primarily responsible for the recent performance of a privately held Vietnam based company that is at least 5 years old or a founder or co-founder of a listed Vietnam-based company who is still active in senior management.
Who can submit a nomination?
Anyone associated with a successful entrepreneur, even the professional adviser, customer, supplier, banker, lawyer, employee or spouse may nominate. Self-nomination is also possible. Once we’ve received your nomination, we will contact you and the nominee(s) to follow up with other required information and documents to facilitate the nomination process.
If I am in a partnership, can I a) submit a single nomination? b) submit a joint nomination together with the partner(s)?
The nominee can be nominated singly or jointly with other partner(s) depending on the nominee’s participation in the business. Joint nominations are acceptable so long as all parties are owner-managers and are actively involved in the business.
How can I submit a nomination?
Download the nomination form from EY website, fill the form, get the nominee to sign the form and then send it to EOY contacts at EY office in HCM or Hanoi.
When is the deadline for nominations?
All completed nomination forms and supporting documents must reach EY by end of March. We strongly encourage nominations to be submitted as early as possible to allow sufficient time for us to follow up with the nominees.
If I had previously been nominated for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year awards, can I still participate in it again?
Yes, you can. We encourage all previous nominees to participate in the awards again.
What happens after the nominee submits the nomination form?
Completed nomination forms will be verified and processed based on the judging criteria. On-site interviews with the shortlisted nominees will be conducted between April and May 2011. Thereafter, the independent panel of judges will convene in July 2011 to select the category award winners and overall winner.
The category award winners will be announced before the Awards Gala and the overall winner will only be revealed during the Awards Gala held on 9 September 2011. All award recipients will be honored at the Awards Gala.
