Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards

The deadline is rapidly approaching and with only just over a week to go to get your entries in – have you got what it takes to enter and win The EY (Ernst & Young) World Entrepreneur of the Year 2021?

If you have that fire in your belly and know you are a cut above the rest then read on…

The competition is for those who are truly outstanding in the business world.  The winners are highly driven and ambitious individuals who know no boundaries, having achieved global or national success and growth through creativity and personal drive.

You may already have a few business awards to your name, but the EY Entrepreneur Awards say more about you personally than any other award. They are up there with the highest accolade there is for business – the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. But the EY Awards recognise the brightest and the best individuals in the business world. 

The 2020 EY UK overall winner was Ben Francis (pictured below).  Ben founded Gymshark aged just 19 while still a student at Aston University, and juggled full-time study with work as a pizza delivery person to fund the venture.  Gymshark grew from a screen printing operation in a garage into one of the fastest growing brands in fitness.
