SGV Foundation\\\'s Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Philippines 2012 awards is now accepting entries until May 31.

[related|post]Since its inception in 2003, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Philippines program has become one of the most prestigious events for the local business community. The program recognizes the inspiring dedication, brilliance and dauntless spirit of our Filipino entrepreneurs. Over a seven-month period, the SGV Foundation will be running the program from its nomination period to the awarding of winners in October.


The search is open to all Filipino entrepreneurs. To be eligible, a nominee has to be a Filipino business owner or founder who is primarily responsible for the growth of his or her company.  The nominee must still be active in business, which must have been in operation for at least two years.  A completed nomination form, audited financial statements and other documents are required for a nomination to be considered for further judging.



There will be four award categories for this year: Master Entrepreneur, Small Business Entrepreneur, Social Entrepreneur, and Woman Entrepreneur.  From among these category winners will emerge the Entrepreneur Of The Year Philippines 2012, who will represent the country in the 2013 World Entrepreneur Of The Year awards in Monte Carlo, Monaco in June 2013.


The theme for the 2012 program is “Passion.” Program Director, Atty. Antonette Tionko, shares, “Passion is the fuel that sets afire the entrepreneurial spirit.  It is what compels men and women to believe in and pursue their dreams. It is the common thread that binds entrepreneurs, transforming ordinary people into extraordinary visionaries. Through their enthusiasm and conviction, Filipino entrepreneurs motivate others and contribute positively to the economy. In 2012, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Philippines program celebrates the inspiring passions and achievements of Filipino entrepreneurs. ”
