Successful entrepreneurs stimulate economic growth worldwide. EY annually arranges the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year award in more than 60 countries. The purpose is to make entrepreneurs visible and increase interest in entrepreneurship. The award will also inspire tomorrow's entrepreneurs.
EY started EY Entrepreneur Of The Year in the USA as early as 1986. In Sweden, the award began to be presented in 1995 under the name Entrepreneur of the Year. Since 2001, the award has been called EY Entrepreneur Of The Year and is awarded regionally, nationally and internationally. Over the years, EY has had the privilege of meeting and working with the world's most successful entrepreneurs. This has led to a deep insight into this dynamic group, which, regardless of industry and background, is characterized by similar behavioral patterns and ways of thinking.
On March 26, 18.00, Sweden's most successful entrepreneurs will compete for the national award. The winner of the main prize category EY Entrepreneur Of The Year will then represent Sweden at the international final EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year. During the national finals, the female shooting star of the year, the male shooting star of the year, the best international growth and the honorary award Social Entrepreneur of the Year are also awarded.
