EY is recognizing an impressive group of Atlantic entrepreneurs for their financial performance, vision, leadership, personal integrity and entrepreneurial spirit. Today, the firm named 26 finalists across 7 categories in its EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Atlantic 2016 awards program.
“Entrepreneurship is about finding new ways to approach challenging problems. It’s about growing your community while growing your business, and building prosperity for yourself, as well as others,” says Gina Kinsman, Entrepreneur Of The Year Atlantic program director. “This year’s finalists in our region are diverse and brimming with ideas to help build a better world for the next generation. We couldn’t be more proud.”
An independent panel of judges will name winners in a number of categories, and one of the category winners as the overall Atlantic winner. That winner will then compete with winners from Québec, Ontario, Prairies and Pacific regions for the Canadian Entrepreneur Of The Year title. The Canadian winner will go on to compete with winners from more than 50 countries for the title of EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year, in June 2017.
The Canadian Entrepreneur Of The Year program is in its 23rd year of recognizing, celebrating and telling the inspiring stories of the country’s most impressive entrepreneurs from all areas of business and different stages of their entrepreneurial journey.
The Atlantic winners will be announced at a gala in Halifax on 6 October 2016.
