The 14th edition of Business Review Awards Gala, BR’s flagship event that recognizes outstanding achievements in the business community, will take place on March 4. We want to highlight the 14 categories in which the independent jury will select the winners for their exceptional performance in 2018.
The Best Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year category is split into two sub-categories this year: Companies & NGOs.
This award recognizes the entrepreneurial efforts and achievements of a local emerging business person who has managed to develop a successful regional or national business (expansion on the local and other foreign markets, significant organic growth, high potential for development of their business both on a local or international market).
Last year’s winner in the Best Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year category was Radu Savopol, the Founder of 5 To Go, for the company’s turnover increase by 134 percent in 2017 compared with 2016.
