Here’s to the unstoppable entrepreneurs transforming our world.

Humanity is capable of great things. But to build something of long-term value takes grit, persistence and a sense of ambition that’s free of doubt or fear. It takes a special kind of leader to ignore the critics and transform a blue-sky dream into a new reality that contributes value and purpose beyond simple profits. We call these entrepreneurs the unstoppables — those whose unbounded ambitions deliver innovation, growth and prosperity that transform our world.

Why is this entrepreneurial ecosystem so important?

In June 2019, Brad Keywell, Founder and CEO of Chicago-based Uptake Technologies, competed against program award winners from nearly 60 countries and was named the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2019, our top entrepreneurial honor. He shares the significance of this global recognition and the value of being part of the Entrepreneur Of The Year community in the video below.
