Entrepreneur Of The Year Celebrates Ambitious Entrepreneurs Who Are Shaping the Future

MALVERN, PA April 29, 2024 — Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) has named  Domenic Colasante, CEO of 2X, as an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2024 Greater Philadelphia Award finalist. Now in its 38th year, Entrepreneur Of The Year is the preeminent competitive business award for audacious leaders who disrupt markets, revolutionize sectors, and have a transformational impact on lives. Over the past four decades, the program has recognized the daring entrepreneurs with big ideas and bold actions that reshape our world. 

Colasante was one of 30 regional entrepreneurs selected as finalists by an independent panel of judges. The candidates of this esteemed program were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.

“I am truly humbled by the recognition of being named a finalist in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2024 Greater Philadelphia program. Leading the incredible team at 2X and earning the trust of industry-leading marketers as our clients has been my greatest career privilege,” said Colasante. “It’s an honor to stand among a select group of bold leaders who disrupt markets, revolutionize sectors, and positively impact lives. I am grateful for the support of those who believe in our vision. Thank you all for joining me on this incredible journey!”

Entrepreneur Of The Year honors many different types of business leaders for their ingenuity, courage, and entrepreneurial spirit. The program celebrates original founders who bootstrapped their business from inception or who raised outside capital to grow their company, transformational CEOs who infused innovation into an existing organization to catapult its trajectory.

Regional award winners will be announced on June 6 during a special celebration and will become lifetime members of an esteemed community of Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world. The winners will then be considered by the national judges for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® National Awards, which will be presented in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies.

In addition to Entrepreneur Of The Year, EY US supports other entrepreneurs through the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ program and the EY Entrepreneurs Access Network to help connect women founders and Black and Hispanic/Latino entrepreneurs, respectively, with the resources, network, and access needed to unlock their full potential.
