Welcome note

We all operate in an increasingly global marketplace. New markets have opened up and new communication technologies have brought us closer together. We’ve made huge progress in science and technology, weathered economic shocks and accumulated a wealth of knowledge.

Throughout, entrepreneurs have done more than any other group to stimulate innovation, job creation and prosperity, both during periods of growth and in challenging economic conditions.

EY’s Entrepreneur Of The Year brings together and celebrates the creativity, vision and dedication of the world’s most deserving entrepreneurs. The program spans more than 145 cities and 60 countries, which together represent more than 90% of the global economy.

We are proud to have the program in two regions across the Middle East and look forward to celebrating the achievement of our successful entrepreneurs. The country-winners will go on to represent their respective countries at the World Entrepreneur Of The Year event in Monte Carlo in June.
