Representing the best of entrepreneurship

Starting at the regional and country level, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year honors leaders who demonstrate excellence in areas such as innovation, financial performance, social responsibility, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. ​​

Each annual program concludes with a competition and announcement of category winners — such as industry and innovation winners — and an overall winner. Winners are selected by an independent panel of judges who are successful, innovative entrepreneurs themselves. ​
