Awards & Nominations

Since 1994, the Niagara Entrepreneur of the Year Awards has been recognizing nominees and award recipients across a range of juried categories and has inducted entrepreneurs into NEYA’s Hall of Fame in three categories: Lifetime Achievement, Community Contribution and Historical. In 2009, NEYA introduced the Gene Luczkiw Spirt of Enterprise Scholarship Award to the lineup of honours. In this 25th anniversary year, the program will focus exclusively only honouring Niagara’s Top Entrepreneurs of the Last 25 Years – a celebration of those individuals whose entrepreneurial activities have spanned several decades and whose achievements have left a lasting mark on our community.
