The search for Australia’s best and brightest entrepreneurs has begun. We are seeking successful entrepreneurs to compete for the title of 2017 Australian EY Entrepreneur Of The Year.

Launched in Australia in 2001, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program has recognised over 1,400 Australian entrepreneurs for their vision and achievement. The overall winner will go on to compete at the 2018 EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year awards in Monte Carlo, following in the footsteps of Manny Stul, Moose Enterprise, the first ever Australian to be crowned World Entrepreneur Of The Year in 2016.

EY encourages women to apply for the Entrepreneur Of The Year awards. The program empowers women entrepreneurs to think bigger, gain access to capital, enhance their business profile, network, learn from their peers and find seasoned advisors.
