The latest EY Entrepreneurship documentary, “The Unstoppables 3”, features inspiring personal and professional entrepreneur success stories.

What makes an entrepreneur unstoppable? Passion and purpose, family and friends, inspiration and impact — they each play a role. In the world premiere of our new entrepreneurship documentary, “The Unstoppables 3,” we’re exploring them all.

Every year, EY teams around the world seek out the amazing individuals who are transforming the way we live, work and play. And every year, I’m excited to meet these Unstoppables and learn what — and who — has inspired them to change the world. 

But I can’t keep these entrepreneur success stories to myself. In “The Unstoppables 3” documentary, you’ll meet three EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award winners and find out how they’re building a better working world. 

The documentary follows the stories of: 

  • Dr. Zhou Lihan – who made it his mission to save lives through early cancer detection
  • Falguni Nayar – who took a consumer-first approach to building a beauty and wellness empire
  • Gaston Taratuta – who had a vision to connect the developing world to digital advertising

When it comes to diseases like cancer, Lihan says, “Early detection is no longer optional. It’s a necessity.” MiRXES has seized on advances in human genome sequencing to become the world leader in RNA-based early cancer detection.


For Lihan, passion, purpose and mission are the same. His passion continues to inspire those around him, as you’ll see in the entrepreneurship documentary.
