A shortlist of eight will be based on public votes
The nominees for the People’s Choice award for Entrepreneur of the Year 2017 have been announced today and are now open for you to vote and choose your winner. Voting closes on Sunday 15th October.
The longlist comprises 50 of the most admired entrepreneurial man and women, as chosen for recognition by Arabian Business StartUp readers, the wider media and those in the start-up/SME ecosystem itself.
The nominees are all founders of either early stage or recent start-ups, or SME businesses, and have been put forward based on their innovative business ideas, impressive growth performance, managerial acumen, their success at attracting funding, or simply because they are making a positive difference to our lives and the economy.
The eight nominees with the highest number of public votes will be shortlisted, with your ultimate winner announced and honoured at the Arabian Business StartUp Awards 2017, taking place at the Rixos Premium in Dubai’s JBR.
The winner of the People’s Choice Award for Entrepreneur of the Year is the only award that is decided solely by Arabian Business StartUp readers.
