At Shiftsmart, we often refer to our partners as micro-entrepreneurs, which makes the announcement from Ernst & Young especially exciting that two Shiftsmart leaders, Aakash Kumar, CEO and Founder and Patrick Brandt, President and Co-founder were each named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 Southwest Award finalist. The Entrepreneur Of The Year program calls them “unstoppable entrepreneurs” dedicated to building and growing successful, dynamic companies that can help “catapult us from the now to next and beyond.”
Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. Selected by a panel of independent judges, the awards recognize visionary leaders who transform our world through their innovation, growth, and prosperity, the organization says.
Winners of the regional entrepreneur of the year award will be announced in a virtual celebration on August 4, 2021. For more information about the awards and the other inspiring finalists, visit this page.
