Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2020

Do you think you are genuinely entrepreneurial? Have you taken your company to the next level? Then consider this: while winning any business award is beneficial, not all business awards are created equal – some are life changing. The EY (Ernst & Young) World Entrepreneur of the Year 2020, which just opened for entries, is transformational. A word of warning: it’s not for the faint-hearted, but if you know you are the best then read on…

The competition is for the front runners of the business world; those who have redefined their industry or even created a new one, and have improved the quality of life for communities along the way. 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 than any other award. They are almost on a par with the highest business accolade, the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, which is for companies, but the EY Awards recognise the brightest and the best individuals in the business world.  

This year’s EY World Entrepreneur of the year is US business leader Brad Keywell the founder of seven technology companies including Uptake Technologies, an industrial artificial intelligence software platform; Groupon, a collective buying platform; and Lightbank, a venture capital firm.  

If you have a remarkable career and can demonstrate perseverance and the ability to overcome challenges, we can help you secure a win in these prestigious awards. We can proudly say that our success rate is 2 in 3 (over 65%) whereas the average success rate is 1 in 10 (10%) for those entering awards on their own.
