Visit to start your application today. RSM, the world’s seventh largest network of independent audit, tax and advisory firms, is the lead sponsor of the 2013/14 European Business Awards.

After the entry phase, up to 800 National Champions will be shortlisted. Judges will then meet in January 2014, to select the top scoring companies from the pool of National Champions across Europe to become Ruban d’Honneur recipients in each of the award categories, including RSM Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

Those companies successfully selected as Ruban d’Honneur recipients will attend the final judging phase in February/March 2014, where they will give face-to-face presentations and interviews with a panel of expert judges, who will then determine the overall category winners in the Europe-wide competition.

The Ruban d’Honneur recipients will be honoured and winners announced at a gala dinner and awards ceremony in April 2014.

The awards offer entrants unparalleled opportunities to network and share best practice, as well as providing a chance to meet like-minded businesses from across Europe, with a view to forging successful business relationships.

The awards have an esteemed panel of judges including European business leaders, academics and entrepreneurs as well as high-profile sponsors including RSM, Millicom, Infosys, UKTI and BP Target Neutral. The official patron of the Awards is Karel De Gucht, the European Commissioner for Trade.

Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM says, “The RSM Entrepreneur of the Year Award is a leading platform for showcasing Europe’s most promising business talent. As one of the world's largest audit, tax and advisory networks, we are committed to promoting quality and excellence in business and championing the role of the entrepreneur. We are delighted to be once again supporting the European Business Awards, this time as lead sponsor.”
