Congratulations to all the regional winners.
The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2016 gala season is now over and we want to congratulate all of the regional winners. As we celebrate the 30th anniversary of this program, we are excited to honor the many significant achievements of the 259 winners from 224 great performing companies. They are significant because we're honoring and recognizing men and women who create the products, services and jobs that help our economy and communities grow — and encouraging others to be like them.
In 2016 the 1,700 nominees employed over 800,000 people and had significant job growth of 30%.
In 2016 they generated revenue of over $424 Billion, with revenue growth growing in excess of 57%.
Congratulations to all the 2016 nominees and good luck to all the regional winners as they make their way to Palm Springs for the national awards.
