Celebrating the 35th class of unstoppable entrepreneurs who transform Greater Philadelphia and beyond
PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#gettacar–Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) has named Yossi Levi, Founder and CEO of gettacar an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 Greater Philadelphia Award finalist. Now in its 35th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors unstoppable business leaders whose ambition, ingenuity, and courage in the face of adversity help catapult us from the now to next and beyond.
Yossi Levi was selected by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced during a special virtual celebration on July 27, 2021 and will become lifetime members of an esteemed community of Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world.
Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The nominees are evaluated based on six criteria: entrepreneurial leadership; talent management; degree of difficulty; financial performance; societal impact and building a values-based company; and originality, innovation and future plans. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.
“It is an honor to be recognized among the visionary finalists in the Entrepreneur Of The Year Greater Philadelphia Award. After my childhood experiences working at the family’s car dealership, I saw an opportunity to improve the overall car buying experience for customers focused on reducing or eliminating the typical car buying pain points and a vertically integrated business model,” said Levi. “I am grateful to the friends and family who believed in my vision and became early investors, the gettacar team who are committed to delivering the best customer experience, and to E&Y for continuing to promote the value of entrepreneurial activity.”
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, to be announced in November at the Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2022.
