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.
