Over the past five years, those of us in uTest nation have seen our company grow and succeed. As of late, we’ve been increasingly fortunate to have that success acknowledged by others.
I found out a few weeks back that I was one of 32 finalists for the New England program of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year© awards. I was surprised and excited to make it that far and to receive an invitation to last night’s gala in Boston.
While I was not selected as a winner, to be nominated alongside such accomplished entrepreneurs as Paul English, Barbara Lynch and the others was an incredible honor I won’t soon forget. I’d like to extend my gratitude to the judges for their generous consideration.
Ernst & Young defines “Entrepreneur” in part as ‘someone who doesn’t believe those who say it can’t be done, someone who sees opportunity in every problem, someone who won’t take “no” for an answer.’ There is no question that last night’s winners certainly fit that description.
Thanks to Ernst & Young for a wonderful evening and for celebrating and honoring the entrepreneurial spirit. And congratulations and thanks to all of the winners and finalists for inspiring those of us in uTest nation with your vision and leadership!
