The countdown has started for established and rising entrepreneurs to participate in the 2018 Malta EY Entrepreneur of the Year™ Award. Applicants have until Friday 9th February 2018 to submit their nominations for the second edition of this prestigious award.
The winner, who will be announced during an award ceremony on 21 March 2018, will be flown to Monaco to compete for the grand prize, the EY World Entrepreneur of the Year™ Award.
Being nominated can elevate a company’s profile through exposure to other entrepreneurs, sponsors, judges and guests. The winner will also benefit from significant international visibility, which could drive the next phase of their company’s growth.
In addition to the main award, the EY Rising Star Award will be presented to a contender running a high growth business that is generating excitement in the market. The winner of this award will also attend the World Entrepreneur of the Year™ event in Monaco.
Nominees must either be Maltese or have been operating a company based in Malta for at least two years. Anyone, including employees, company advisors and financiers can nominate an entrepreneur, with the latter's consent. Many of the nominations come from the entrepreneurs themselves.
Last year, Corinthia Group Chairman Alfred Pisani and Altaro Software co-founder and CEO David Vella won the Maltese EY Entrepreneur of the Year™ and EY Rising Star awards.
