“Tonight we have the honor of being surrounded by people who have not retreated when few believed in their business ideas. This year alone, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year program has featured 30 candidates from 24 companies that generated over 12 billion dinars in revenue last year, and our team has traveled all over Serbia to translate all these inspirational stories into quality nominations. These 8 years of the program have shown us that faith in an idea and plenty of effort really pay off. I am pleased to say that tonight we are sitting with two hundred of the most persistent people and extolling their success, which is much more than mere luck,” said Ivan Rakić, EY's Managing Partner for Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Zoran and Nikola Anđelković will represent the Republic of Serbia in the selection for the World EY Entrepreneur of the Year, to be held in Monte Carlo in June.
