“Recognising entrepreneurial spirit through acclaiming successes is a key driver in building an enterprise economy,” said Mr. Denis O’Brien, Chairman, Digicel Group. “That’s why we have created The Digicel Entrepreneur of the Year Awards Programme, with a fitting theme Ignite the Spirit of Enterprise, and the vision it embraces is nothing less than a thoroughly regenerated, newly modernised, enterprise-driven Haiti,” he added.
Nominations are now invited from across six categories: Tourism and Culture, The Environment, Food and Agriculture, Industry, Services and Emerging Entrepreneurs.
