Ernst & Young is pleased to announce the launch of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year China 2008 awards program. Every year, the program is getting bigger and stronger in China and around the world, reinforcing its reputation as one of the most globally recognized business awards in the world. This global program has grown to more than 135 cities in 50 countries, with about 1,000 awards presented to the world’s most successful entrepreneurs.

In China, the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year China program has received phenomenal response in the past two years. Awards have presented to 22 entrepreneurs, including the country winners Jiang Nanchun of Focus Media and Horst Julius Pudwill of Techtronic Industries in 2006, and Liu Yonghao of New Hope Group and Daisy Poon of Ajisen (China)Holdings in 2007. Many of the past winners have received venture capital and private equity financing at some points during their development into market leaders. This goes to show the important role we play in nurturing China's economic development, by identifying and championing successful and innovation entrepreneurs.

As a proud Supporting Partner for this awards program, Hong Kong Venture Capital and Private Equity Association would like to invite our members to participate by nominating entrepreneurs in mainland China, Hong Kong or Macau who inspire others with their vision, leadership and achievement.

So if there is someone you know who deserves to be recognized and rewarded for their innovation, passion and determination - and above all – success, please nominate now.

Nominations will be open till the end of July 2008 and the Awards Gala will be held in Shanghai in November.

For further information on the nomination process, please visit or contact Ernst & Young at (852) 2849 9310 or
