The Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 gala season is now over and we want to congratulate all of the regional winners, the most dynamic entrepreneurs forging a better future. We are excited to honor the many significant achievements of the 261 winners from 219 great performing companies. They are significant because we're honoring and recognizing men and women who create the products, services and jobs that help our economy and communities grow — and encouraging others to follow their lead.

In 2017 the 261 winners employed over 230,000 people and had job growth of 20%.

In 2017 they generated revenue of over $52 Billion, with revenue growth growing in excess of 33%.

Congratulations to all the 2017 nominees and good luck to all the regional winners as they make their way to Palm Springs for the national awards.
