Economic growth and job creation are driven by entrepreneurs. In 2007, EY launched the Entrepreneur of the Year program in Kazakhstan. This contest is part of an EY international program held in more than 60 countries that aims to recognize and honor the outstanding achievements of entrepreneurs in developing both local and global economies.
Over the years, the Kazakhstan program has recognized over 80 finalists from various industry sectors and regions. The national winners have represented Kazakhstan in the EY World Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
