  • 65 entrepreneurs from 53 countries to be inducted into EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Hall of Fame 
  • Three day forum addresses impact entrepreneurs can make and the legacy they can leave, and in particular the global issue of  youth unemployment

The world’s most successful and innovative entrepreneurs descend on Monte Carlo 4-6 June ahead of the 2015 EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Award. 

Now in its 15th year, the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Award is considered the world's most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs. The event will celebrate the legacy that entrepreneurs leave through the innovations, jobs and economic growth they create, all of which help to build a better working world. 

65 Entrepreneur Of The Year winners from 53 countries will compete for the world title and cement their legacy by entering the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Hall of Fame in Monte Carlo. The winner will be announced at a ceremony on the evening of Saturday, 6th June at Salle Des Étoiles.

World Entrepreneur Of The Year finalists are assessed by an independent panel of judges from around the world, most of whom have previously participated in Entrepreneur Of The Year programs. 

As well as the awards, this year’s program includes a series of keynote speeches, panel discussions and events of special interest to entrepreneurs and influential business leaders in attendance. Under the theme "How are you reshaping our world?,” the sessions will look at the impact entrepreneurs can make and the legacy they can leave, and in particular the global issue of  youth unemployment.

Honouring the contributions of successful entrepreneurs across the globe, the program also aims to identify entrepreneurial role models for the next generation of business leaders – thereby helping foster new entrepreneurial activity and economic growth in participating countries.

Full information of the event, judging criteria, keynotes speakers, this year’s country winners and past WEOY winners is available at www.ey.com/weoy.
