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: entrepreneurial leadership; talent management; degree of difficulty; financial performance; societal impact and building a values-based company; and originality, innovation and future plans. Sirota was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.

“It is truly an honor to be named a finalist for Entrepreneur Of The Year®, the world’s most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs,” said Sirota. “I’m pleased to be recognized among the visionary finalists in the New York region. In the face of the many challenges that we face today, entrepreneurs have a vital role to play in creating a better future. BigID is reimagining how organizations manage their data through automation, deep context, and improved accuracy and efficiency for data management teams. Our mission is to ensure companies get more value from their data, and this award is in part validation for the work that we do.”

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, to be announced 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 2022.
