by Startacus Admin
Fancy your chances at winning one of the world’s most prestigious business awards? Then read on because Ernst & Young have just launched their search for the “Entrepreneur of the Year 2015”.
Here’s the lowdown…
The Entrepreneur of the Year Award originated in the US in 1986 and now has spread to more than 60 countries worldwide and as it has grown in size so has it grown in terms of prestige.
Entrepreneurs from corporate businesses and social enterprises alike are welcome to apply provided they embody an innate passion, drive and vision to succeed or an ongoing commitment to create positive change within their communities.
Applications are currently being accepted until 6th March 2015. Regional finalists will then be announced in April and the UK’s overall winner will be revealed at an award ceremony in October.
Although there can only be one winner, all entrants will still reap some benefits - from refining their business strategies, enhancing their business or personal profile and of course developing new links and relationships thanks to the plethora of networking opportunities which are created and forged.
