Entrepreneur of the Year nomination writing and public relations


Your business has grown from a glimmer of an idea into an impressive enterprise, and you deserve to be recognized for it. It may have been a group effort, and you may be reluctant to highlight your individual achievements, but this award is good for your business. Winning is as much for your team as it is for you.

Few business accolades carry the level of prestige and name recognition as the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award. You are a successful entrepreneur who demonstrates inspiring vision, leadership, and passion – traits that Ernst & Young seeks to recognize through its annual awards program in Florida.
