Celebrating entrepreneurial ingenuity and the legacy it creates

Entrepreneurs shape our lives. They create jobs, stimulate innovation without limitations. They build nations by fueling economic growth and prosperity. Driven by their desire to better the world around them, they stop at nothing to achieve their greatest ambitions.

The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year (EOY) program was launched to celebrate the entrepreneurial ingenuity of such unstoppables, to share their inspiring stories and recognize their achievements.

Over the last two decades, the EOY India program has honored over 190 entrepreneurs over several categories. For us, these exceptional entrepreneurs are “Builders of a better India”.

This year marks the 21st year of the EOY India program. Every year, an independent jury comprising of some of India’s most eminent business leaders select the finalists and winners of the program.

Finalists and Winners of the EOY 2019 program were felicitated at a grand awards gala, amidst a gathering of India’s leading entrepreneurs, business icons, investors and government leaders on 19 February 2020 at New Delhi. The India winner will join winners from different countries in June 2020 in Monte Carlo, where one entrepreneur will be announced as World Entrepreneur Of The Year.

Our 2019 Finalists have shown a clear strategy, steadfast focus on staying relevant for their customers and a commitment to creating long-term impact.
