EY Entrepreneur Of The Year China
About the awards
The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year awards program is one of the world’s most prestigious business accolades for entrepreneurs as it honors entrepreneurs who inspire others with their outstanding vision, leadership and achievement.
Created in the United States in 1986, the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year (EOY) awards program has grown to more than 145 cities in 60 countries and regions, with awards presented to over one thousand of the most successful and innovative entrepreneurs around the world.
The China program, launched in 2006, is recognized for honoring entrepreneurs in China who achieve success by combining ability with opportunity. In particular, the program recognizes the benefits that entrepreneurs and their entrepreneurial spirit bring to the Chinese economy by creating employment opportunities and enhancing the competitiveness of Chinese enterprises.
Unlike business awards, which take place at a local or national level, the EOY national winners go on to represent their countries at an international awards ceremony that celebrates their leadership and accomplishments. In all, over 50 national award winners from around the world are presented to a distinguished panel of judges comprising past winners and business leaders to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year (WEOY) award.
The EOY China 2017 country winners will go on to represent China at an international awards ceremony in June of the following year, in which they will compete for the prestigious title of WEOY. The WEOY awards provide business elites an exclusive platform to network, strategize and plan their next projects.
Mr. Cho Tak Wong of Fuyao Glass Industry Group, the EOY China 2008 country winner went on to be named the WEOY 2009.
