Future Founders Chairman Named EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year

I’m excited to share that Brad Keywell, Board Chairman of Future Founders, was named the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year for 2019. The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year is the world’s most prestigious business awards program for entrepreneurs.

Brad is a serial entrepreneur and philanthropist whose work in data science helped his company, Uptake Technologies, become the fastest growing startup to reach a $2 billion valuation.

According to EY, Brad was selected from among 761 program participants that included the 57 country winners from 47 countries and territories vying for the title in Monaco. In the program’s 19-year history, Brad becomes the third EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winner from the United States. He follows former US world title winners Hamdi Ulukaya of Chobani, Inc., who won the award in 2013, and Wayne Huizenga of Huizenga Holdings, Inc., in 2005.

I’m thrilled that EY recognized Brad’s tremendous accomplishments, one of which includes founding and supporting Future Founders. I’m honored to call him a mentor and friend.

Please join me in congratulating Brad for this prestigious honor. We wouldn’t be where we are today without him!
