Seeking the unstoppable entrepreneurs transforming our world.

There are a lot of successful people in the world. But to build something truly remarkable, you can’t let anything stand in your way. And only a few leaders are part of this special group: the ones who never give up. Driven by their desire to better the world around them, they stop at nothing to achieve their greatest ambitions. They cut through the noise of this transformative age by breaking away from the pack — and then end up leading it.

Last month, we announced and honored our 2019 national and regional award winners across Canada. These unstoppable leaders will now move on to compete on the world level.

Visit our winners page to see this year’s unstoppable entrepreneurs.

If you are an unstoppable entrepreneur or have been inspired by an innovative leader, we invite you to submit a nomination to the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2020 program. Nominations will open in March 2020.
