We admire entrepreneurs for their ambition, and we celebrate their success. Relentlessly optimistic and always curious, entrepreneurs see opportunity amid disruption and rise up when there are problems to be solved. Today, entrepreneurs are making a world of difference and inspiring us all.
Our goal is to support entrepreneurs as they transform their business and scale to new heights. One way we do that is through the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ program.
Since its founding 35 years ago in the US, this global awards program is now in more than 60 countries and over 145 cities around the world. It has become the ultimate global competition for entrepreneurs.
Every year, winners from around the world vie for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ title.
But selecting that overall winner requires us to understand that entrepreneurship and business success can look different in different parts of the world.
We strive to compare all of our winners fairly through six criteria that encompass long-term value.
