We believe that only practitioners are able to best assess the achievements of candidates. The jury, independent from EY, decides on the best entrepreneur, taking into account such aspects as: entrepreneurship, strategy, international activity, innovation, as well as relations with employees and the environment. EY Entrepreneur of the Year is an initiative aimed at honoring a man – an entrepreneur, a visionary, a leader, not his company.
