Passion, vision, achievement. Sound like someone you know?

The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year ® 2013 call for nominations is now underway! Now in its 27th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year awards have honored and recognized the men and women who build the businesses and create the products, services and jobs that drive our economy forward. Entrepreneur Of The Year finalists and award recipients receive great publicity for their companies and teams in and beyond their communities. Participation in the awards process provides an excellent opportunity for diverse entrepreneurs to build networks that include new clients, suppliers, investors and mentors.

Participating in the awards process will give you access to a network of other leading entrepreneurs and high-growth company executives. You will also have the opportunity to meet sponsors, judges, corporate development officers and others, who may be seeking customers, alliances, joint ventures and M&A opportunities.

Awards are given to entrepreneurs who create and build market-leading businesses, take the standard of excellence to new heights, transform the face of their industry, create jobs and contribute to the vibrancy of their communities. All regional Entrepreneur Of The Year award recipients are also eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards presented in Palm Springs, CA in November 2013 as the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum ® . Regional and national award winners are selected by an independent panel of judges comprised of past award winners, business executives and industry leaders.
