Ernst & Young is seeking entrepreneurs for the 24th annual Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year(R) program. The program honors exactly what the name says – the entrepreneur. The individual who puts everything on the line and translates an idea into a viable, sustainable enterprise. The business the entrepreneur creates – how successful it’s been, its everyday practice with respect to employees, its impact on the community – all these things provide the metrics for selecting award winners. Past EOY winners include Michael Dell of Dell Computers, Christos Cotsakos of E*Trade, and Howard Schultz of Starbucks Coffee.

Entrepreneurs include both founders of companies and those who organize, manage, and assume the “educated” risks of a business or enterprise early in the company’s life or development and are still active in the leadership of the company. Entrepreneurs can also be multi-generational (business passed from generation to generation) assuming the current CEO continues to manage the business and assumes the appropriate educated risks. The new generation should take the business to the next level. Entrepreneurs find creative, venturesome ways to acquire the capital resources they need to achieve their goals, to build and grow a business. Someone who drives the process of creating value by combining resources to exploit an opportunity.
