Celebrating the Art of Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurs contribute to our lives. They generate jobs and drive innovation without regard for boundaries. They encourage the process of nation building by promoting economic growth and prosperity. They combat disruptive forces and deliver creative solutions even during the most difficult circumstances, because of their imaginative ideas and unwavering spirit. Driven by their desire to improve the world around them, they stop at nothing to achieve their greatest ambitions.

This year we will recognise and celebrate artistic entrepreneurs who continuously repaint and reframe our economy from innovative new perspectives through their passionate work and zeal to work towards creating businesses and opportunities that have a valuable and lasting impact on communities to create a better working world.

The EOY Awards program is widely regarded as the world's first truly global business award, highlighting the top entrepreneurial talent. The first EOY program took place in 1986 in the US. In India, the EOY program was formally launched in 1999 in Mumbai. Over the last two decades, the EOY India program has felicitated over 250 entrepreneurs in several categories.

Every year, an independent jury comprised of some of India's most prominent business leaders selects the program's finalists and winners. The EOY title winners include some of the most influential and recognizable names across the globe — Sajjan Jindal, Falguni Nayar, Harsh C. Mariwala, Dr. Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, Siddhartha Lal, Sanjiv Bajaj, Vivek Chaand Sehgal, NR Narayana Murthy, Uday Kotak, Adi Godrej, Sunil Bharti Mittal, Kumar Mangalam Birla, Anand Mahindra, Mukesh Ambani, Anil Agarwal, and Dilip Shanghvi, to name a few.

Nominate an inspirational entrepreneur and join us in celebrating 'The Art of Entrepreneurship' in the 25th EY Entrepreneur Of The Year program.

Nominations for the EOY India 2023 program are open till 18 August 2023.
