EY Entrepreneur of the Year is the world’s most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs. The unique award makes a difference through the way it encourages entrepreneurial activity among those with potential, and recognizes the contribution of people who inspire others with their vision, leadership and achievement. As the first and only truly global award of its kind, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ celebrates those who are building and leading successful, growing and dynamic businesses, recognizing them through regional, national and global awards programs in more than 145 cities in 60 countries.
Speaking on the occasion, an elated Ajit says, “We want to build a sustainable and a scalable organization that will stand the test of time and will be looked upon as a respected and recognized engineering solutions company by our customers. In my view, quality of the leadership is measured not by what one achieves while at the helm, but by what one leaves behind.
