Celebrating ambitious pioneers tackling our biggest challenges
MIAMI, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Dimitri Sirota, CEO and Co-founder of BigID was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2022 Florida Award finalist. Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive business awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who think big to succeed.
"Knowing your data is at the heart of emerging privacy, security and data value requirements."
Mr. Sirota was selected by a panel of independent judges according to the following criteria – entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth and impact – among other core contributions and attributes.
"I founded BigID on the premise that knowing your data is at the heart of emerging privacy, security and data value requirements. The existing solutions just weren't able to keep up with the evolution of data, the acceleration of privacy and protection regulations, and the challenges for a cloud-first world where data is the central player" said Sirota. "BigID is addressing those challenges and transforming how customers manage, protect, and get value from their data - while rising to continue to lead the marketing in industry-firsts. It's such an honor to be selected as a finalist for Entrepreneur Of The Year®, the world's most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs, alongside the innovative and visionary finalists this year."
Regional award winners will be announced on June 23, 2022. The regional winners will then be considered by the National independent judging panel, and National awards will be presented in November at the Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation's most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies. 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 2023.
