The winners were announced during the final of the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year program at Theater Amsterdam. The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year award has been awarded for more than 30 years in more than 60 countries. The award is intended to put entrepreneurship explicitly on a pedestal and to encourage and support entrepreneurs to get the best out of themselves, their customers and their employees.


About Atilay Uslu

The independent jury calls Atilay an entrepreneur for whom no obstacle is too great. With the travel agency Corendon, he has demonstrated over the years that he is constantly taking on new challenges and has thus established a company that is successful over the long term. The jury praises Atilay for his ability to see solutions where others experience problems and his eye for those around him. As a Dutch winner, Uslu also has the chance to become an EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year. This international election will take place next June in Monaco.
