Entrepreneur Of The Year nomination process

  • Share

At EY, we believe that entrepreneurs are the moving force behind today’s economy. The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year award is an annual program that identifies and honors entrepreneurs who have made a difference and are an inspiration to others.

To be a nominee, the candidate must be an owner-manager primarily responsible for the recent performance of a privately held Singapore-based company that is at least two years old or a founder of a listed Singapore-based company who is still active in senior management.

Participants will be judged by an independent panel of judges comprising past Entrepreneur Of The Year winners, business leaders, government leaders and academia. They will be assessed based on a set of six judging criteria.

If you know someone who is deserving of the award, nominate him/her via our nomination form. If you would like to participate in the awards, fill up the participation form (pdf, 232.3kb)  and submit it to EY at the contact details indicated in the form.
