At the special gala for enterprising entrepreneurs of Northern California, Ernst & Young (EY) held a special event at The Fairmont in San Francisco. These leaders were selected by independent panel of judges comprising of regional leaders in business, CEO’s and capital investors’ consortium. The organization has been honoring top-performing entrepreneurs for nearly 29 years. These winning entrepreneurs are also accomplished leaders that contribute to local communities and also help their employees excel in their fields. In its years of existence, the organization has expanded and now recognizes business leaders in 145 cities across 60 nations around the world.

About EY’s Awards and strategic growth activities
The awards within the United States are sponsored jointly by Ewing Marion Kauffman with SAP America along with other sponsors. The award is regarded as the most prestigious award among emerging entrepreneurs that encourages pioneering spirit and contribution to society. People are recognized for their ability to inspire others to make positive changes in society and lead dynamic businesses successfully. Though it is a global award, it recognizes regional and national leaders before felicitating international business leaders.
As a global organization, Ernst and Young helps nurture young leaders that can help their clients and local communities build a better tomorrow for their business. Due to recent upheaval in world markets following the economic crisis, most investors now have little faith in equity markets and financial advisory firms. EY’s growth strategy helps high growth companies to manage multidisciplinary teams and hire professionals that can handle work with little advisory services. The firm is a global leader in helping firms go public and advising government organizations to device polices to accelerate growth. As a global leader in advisory services, EY plays a critical role in making the world a better place for people to work in amicable harmony.
