30 years of ingenuity
in America

Nominate

The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® Program is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2016, and as we kick off our search for the country’s most innovative entrepreneurs, we invite you to nominate someone in your community, or even yourself, to be named among the next generation of legacy builders. Since 1986, EY has honored the entrepreneurs whose ingenuity, spirit of innovation and discipline have benefited us all.

Entrepreneurs are not easily defined. They are men and women, old and young, educated in the Ivy League and at the School of Hard Knocks. This much about them is consistent, however: They are visionaries. They are people of passion. And they have the ambition, drive and talent to take an idea and create a market where none existed before. 

If you’ve been inspired by a successful entrepreneur in your community — or are one yourself — submit a nomination for our Entrepreneur Of The Year 2016 Program. Applications will be accepted until March 11, 2016.  Click here to access the online application site or download the nomination materials.

Regional programs

Each spring, the business community comes together to celebrate regional semifinalists, finalists and winners. These honorees not only create and builds market-leading businesses, but also help take the standard of excellence to new heights, transform the face of the industry, create jobs and contribute to the vibrancy of communities.
