The competition is organized globally by EY company since 1986 and gathers participants from over 60 countries. In Poland, the first edition took place in 2003. From this time onwards the initiative built an impressive community around the idea of promoting the success of Polish entrepreneurs. The initiative connects the owners of best Polish companies and authorities in the world of business. The group is constantly growing, offering unparalleled chance for building business relations to new cohorts of participants.

Such criteria – identical in all the countries – gives all entrepreneur globally equal opportunities in competing for the award. EY Entrepreneurs of the Year is the initiative aiming at distinguishing a man – entrepreneur, visionary, leader rather than his company.

Winner of the Aulery – a competition for the best tech company
Aulery are the awards given since 2009. They are annual distinctions for young companies, which develop with determination in technologically innovative environments and promote the culture of entrepreneurship. Aulery were created by Aula Polska- the oldest active barcamp initiative in Poland. The statues are awarded by a Committee composed of practitioners and industry investors. The winners of Aulery have traditionally been the companies that eventually succeed internationally, often due to investors’ attention drawn during the competition.
Winner of Poland GO GLOBAL competition
In recent years polish firms have been growing more effective in reaching to foreign markets. They compete not only with their prices but also with the quality of their services, flexibility of action, excellency in customer service and with implementation of innovative business models. In order for Polish economy to grow dynamically, more Polish companies must take a conscious risk at expanding internationally due to shrinking domestic market caused by the forthcoming demographic restrictions. For this reason PKO Bank Polski S.A. initiated a competition Future Global Leaders. In this competition, organized by think tank: Poland, Go Global!, we select companies that, according to the Committee, have a high potential for success in their respective industries on international markets.
