The UK Entrepreneur of the Year (EOY) Programme has been developed by EY with the objective of identifying and celebrating those entrepreneurs who are building and leading successful businesses. The winners from Scotland participate in the UK programme with the opportunity, if successful of taking part in the EY World Entrepreneur of the Year competition.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to have attended events related with the EY EOY Programme over many years and to have met the organisers, judges and many of the entrants. The quality of businesses which participate is consistently outstanding and I know that the judging process is thorough and considered to be a highly beneficial learning experience.
What, I think sets this programme apart is not only the quality of the businesses and business leaders taking part, but the fact that many of them opt to remain involved afterwards which creates a fantastic alumni.
We sponsored this programme in Scotland a long time ago and we are delighted to have agreed to be the sponsor in Scotland again for each of 2020, 2021 and 2022.” Scott Black, Managing Director, FWB Park Brown
