Alastair was honored today to get word that he has been selected as a Semi-Finalist for Ernst & Young’s (”E&Y”) Entrepreneur of the Year Award. For those of you who are not in the “know,” Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year is the world’s most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs.
Their global program now spans more than 140 cities and 50 countries worldwide, and the US Program has grown from one program to twenty-six. E&Y’s belief that entrepreneurs can transform economies, drive innovation and indeed, change communities, has been proven true year after year. So as E&Y embarks on the 25th anniversary of the Entrepreneur Of The Year Program, they do so with celebration and in the company of more than 8,000 of the most creative and inspirational entrepreneurs from around the globe. And they invite the entrepreneurs of tomorrow to join us at the table with your drive and best ideas.
Alastair has gotten “inside” information that there were over 160 initial applicants from NYC, and the semi-finalist pool selected is significantly smaller. If Alastair wins the regional selection, he automatically goes into E&Y’s national selection process. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and send him some best wishes by clicking on “Add a Comment” above!
