The jury of the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year competition has selected for the 17th time the finalists of the Polish edition of the world’s most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs. Grégoire Nitot, founder and CEO of Sii Poland, is among the 17 candidates nominated for the title.
The EY Entrepreneur of the Year is the only international initiative on such a large scale to promote the best entrepreneurs in the world. The competition fulfills the mission of supporting, developing and promoting the most valuable private companies. Candidates are assessed by an independent jury, among them the best Polish entrepreneurs. The winners are awarded in three categories: Production and Services, New Technologies/Innovation and New Business, from among them the winner of the main title is selected. The Polish winner will represent the country during the global final of the competition in Monte Carlo, competing with the best entrepreneurs from over 60 countries.
– I am proud to be nominated for such a prestigious award, but it wouldn’t be possible without amazing Power People that stand behind me. Sii Poland has been developing dynamically since the very beginning and in the recent years our performance was great, but what distinguishes Sii Poland, apart from our results, is that what we do gives us fun. In fact, fun is one of our 5 main objectives and I believe it is one of the most important factors of a great workplace – says Gregoire Nitot, CEO and founder of Sii Poland.
– EY Entrepreneur of the Year is the only international competition in which Polish entrepreneurs can compete with the creators of companies from around the world, competing for the title of the best entrepreneur in the world in a given year. They don’t compete in the size of the company, the scale of activity and income, although it’s of course equally important. The competition distinguishes a man who stands behind a business idea, whose passion and commitment led to a place where today he can proudly say “I’m an entrepreneur”– says Jacek Kędzior, Managing Partner at EY Poland.
The results of the competition will be announced during the Final Gala, which will take place on Thursday, November 28 in Warsaw.
