Each year, EY recognizes innovative entrepreneurs across the country that transform our world and unlock new sources of value for companies and communities. Early this month 37 businesses were named as finalists in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 Ontario program. And we're thrilled to announce that our Founder and CEO, Robert Madej, is among them!
The independent panel of judges will select seven regional winners who will be announced in July. The winners will move forward to compete with winners from the Pacific, Prairies, Québec and Atlantic regions at the national awards celebration in November 2021, where 10 national winners will be named, including Canada’s EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2021 Award winner. The overall Canadian winner will go on to compete with national winners from across the globe for the title of EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year in June 2022.
Canadian entrepreneurs are a force to be reckoned with — no matter the economic climate
