Awards program celebrates unstoppable entrepreneurs
whose ambitions transform society
JERSEY CITY, NJ, Aug. 25, 2020 – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) has announced that TrialScope CEO Jeff Kozloff was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 New Jersey Award finalist. Now in its 34th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors entrepreneurial business leaders whose ambitions deliver innovation, growth and prosperity as they build and sustain successful businesses. Kozloff was selected as one of 30 finalists by a panel of independent judges.
Kozloff was recognized for his leadership at TrialScope, a SaaS company that enables and advocates for clinical trial transparency. Most recently, TrialScope launched CoronaClinicalTrials.com, a free global resource to both researchers and the general public on COVID-19 clinical trials.
Award winners, announced through virtual events Oct. 6-8, will join a global community of esteemed Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni. This year, unstoppable entrepreneurs who have provided extraordinary support for their communities, employees and others during the COVID-19 crisis also will be recognized for their courage, resilience and ingenuity.
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: overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact; commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.
“I am both honored and humbled to be named an Entrepreneur Of The Year finalist,” said Kozloff. “While I may be in the limelight now, I’d like to acknowledge those who have supported my vision throughout the years, as well as the entire team at TrialScope. By recognizing the efforts of forward-thinking business leaders and their teams, these awards are a source of inspiration to all the up-and-coming entrepreneurs.”
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards to be announced in November during a virtual awards gala. 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 2021.
