Meet the Semi-Finalists for Greater Los Angeles Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year

It’s that time of year again. Ernst & Young has pared down its Greater LA Entrepreneur of the Year competition to a worthy group of semi-finalists. Finalists will be announced May 13 and a gala presentation held June 18 at the Beverly Hilton, hosted by FOX 11 news anchor Christine Devine.

“We typically have between 18-21 finalists and six or seven awards categories by industry,” Greater LA program manager Ashley Evans tells FishbowlLA. “The categories aren’t announced until the gala and are determined by our independent judging panel.”
