EY HAS announced the launch of the ‘Entrepreneur of the Year 2014’ award in Saudi Arabia. The programme celebrates the success of entrepreneurs who build and lead successful, growing and dynamic businesses. The event has been running for 27 years in 145 cities across 60 countries.
Ahmed Reda, Office Managing Partner, Jeddah and ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ Leader at EY said: “I’m delighted that this year, the programme will be running in Saudi Arabia for the first time. Globally, every year the award gives entrepreneurs the recognition they deserve.”
This year, EY decided to run the Entrepreneur of the Year award in Saudi Arabia and focus on the SMEs in line with the Kingdom’s strategy as they are the main supporter of the Kingdom’s economy.
To be eligible for consideration, nominees must be owners and managers who are primarily responsible for the recent performance of a privately held business that is at least two years old.
Awards are given to entrepreneurs who have demonstrated excellence and extraordinary success in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Self-nominations are encouraged and there is no fee to enter. To apply, entrants may contact EY’s KSA Office at +966 (12) 221-8400 or email email@example.com.
