Ernst & Young LLP Begins Its 2013 Search For New Jersey's Most Innovative Entrepreneurs

"This program honors the outstanding entrepreneurs in our region," said Michael Kacsmar, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Program Co-Director for New Jersey. "These entrepreneurs make our community a better place by providing jobs, developing new products and services, and encouraging economic development. They deserve our support and recognition."

Past award winners have included Howard Schultz of Starbucks Coffee Company, Arthur M. Blank of AMB Group, LLC (Home Depot, Atlanta Falcons), Pierre Omidyar of eBay, Inc., Ruth Fertel of Ruth's Chris Steak House, Maxine Clark of Build-A-Bear Workshop, Tom Adams of Rosetta Stone, Reid Hoffman and Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn, and 2012 winner Hamdi Ulukaya, founder of Chobani.

The Entrepreneur Of The Year Program honors entrepreneurs regionally in June. All regional honorees are then invited to the national Entrepreneur Of The Year gala on November 16, 2013, in Palm Springs, California. The gala is the culminating event of the Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum ®, the nation's most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.

The overall national US winner will go on to compete for the World Entrepreneur Of The Year title in Monaco in June 2014.
