EY Entrepreneur Of The Year recognizes the men and women who put everything on the line in order to translate an idea into a viable, sustainable enterprise. Entrepreneurs include both founders of companies and also those who organize, manage and assume the risks of a business and are still active in the company.
The CEO should have passion, vision and the drive to succeed as a compelling leader who embodies entrepreneurial spirit and isn’t afraid to take risks and drive the business forward.
