Once again, Darko Budec is chairman of the jury of the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards
March 17, 2023 - The prestigious EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award was traditionally presented this year in Serbia. During the press conference, our CEO and founder, Darko Budec, who has been chairman of the "EY Entrepreneur of the Year" jury for many years, shared his views on the registered candidates. He pointed out that this year's generation of entrepreneurs was exceptional and that, in his opinion, they are united by great creativity and innovation apart from business efficiency. He noted that out of the 35 registered candidates, six to seven leading entrepreneurs had achieved EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization) in excess of tens of millions of euros. In the words of our director: "Entrepreneurship is becoming a serious game. The prominent Serbian entrepreneurs are now very close to Western European entrepreneurs, which is a remarkable result since their activities are conducted in a small market, in a small and a relatively poor country, compared to the rich markets".
