The World Entrepreneur Of The Year Award program was created by EY to recognize the accomplishments of entrepreneurs around the globe. It builds on EY's more than 29 years of success in running Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award programs in more than 60 countries. Each year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year country winners join together in Monaco to be inducted into the World Entrepreneur Of The Year Hall of Fame and vie for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year title.

We started the program to recognize the world’s most successful and innovative entrepreneurs. By identifying and recognizing the achievements of outstanding entrepreneurs within successful growing, dynamic businesses, we aim to encourage entrepreneurial activity around the world.  We want to encourage people to think about what it takes to be an entrepreneur and how we can create an environment where innovation and creativity thrive. The Entrepreneur Of The Year and World Entrepreneur Of The Year programs are a natural extension of this commitment.

Over the past five years, more than 7,000 entrepreneurs have taken part globally. Among them are leaders of world-famous companies, more than half of which are included in the NASDAQ-100 Index. Past winners include Larry Page and Sergey Brin (Google), Michael Dell (Dell Inc.), Mikael Hed (Rovio, the maker of Angry Birds), and many others.

In 2016, Entrepreneur of the Year was held in Russia for the 13th time.

At EY we are especially focused on creating an equal and comfortable environment for each employee. For several years now, our company has been actively supporting a women's leadership program.

A special program was introduced in Russia called Entrepreneurial Winning Women. It not only includes an annual competition among women entrepreneurs, but also a series of educational workshops that are held at EY's Moscow office.

At the very heart of the contest is the popularization of ​​entrepreneurship among women, as well as equal opportunities for their professional development and career growth. Participation gives you a unique opportunity: informational support, brand awareness, an expansion of your network of professional contacts, as well as motivation and inspiration for business development and your career.

The series of educational projects within the Entrepreneurial Winning Women program includes training sessions to improve your professional skills. Further, they give you the opportunity to gain expert advice and to learn more about the tools and resources available for leadership development and improving business performance.

Since 2006, EY has actively cooperated with the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum and is involved in its organization.

The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) is a unique platform that allows world leaders to discuss the most important issues of our time. The forum is attended annually by the heads of major Russian and international companies, the delegations of international organizations, state officials (executive and legislative) and regional leaders.

Since 2011 Alexander Ivlev, EY Managing Partner for Russia, has been a key member of the SPIEF Organizing Committee.

In 2016 EY took an active part in numerous SPIEF sessions. Short films made by EY were demonstrated over six sessions to briefly introduce discussion topics and key challenges across a number of issues: innovation in health care, the industrial revolution, reglobalization, profiling of Russia’s regions, national systems for export support, and banks versus digital platforms.
