The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year program recognises and celebrates the spirit and contribution of exceptional entrepreneurs. These are the individuals who see things beyond the horizon and help shape the future. By challenging orthodox methods and creating new markets for goods and services, entrepreneurs positively disrupt the way we do business and help enhance our quality of life.
Launched in Australia in 2001, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program has recognised over 1,500 Australian entrepreneurs for their vision and achievement. The overall winner each year goes on to compete at the 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 and Jo Horgan, MECCA Brands, our 2018 Entrepreneur Of The Year.
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.
