EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™
Recognizing the unstoppable entrepreneurs who have shown incredible resilience to unlock new opportunities during uncertain times.
Entrepreneurs shape our lives. They create jobs and stimulate innovation without any limitations. They contribute to the process of nation building by fuelling economic growth and prosperity. With their visionary ideas and relentless spirit, they challenge disruptive forces and bring with them innovative solutions even during the toughest times. Driven by their desire to improve the world around them, they stop at nothing to achieve their greatest ambitions.
