Entrepreneur Of The Year celebrates ambitious entrepreneurs who are building bolder futures
Plano, Texas 6/6/2023 – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) announced that Sheldon Arora of LiquidAgents Healthcare and StaffDNA was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year 2023 Southwest Award finalist. Now in its 37th year, Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive business awards for transformative entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are building a more equitable, sustainable and prosperous world for all.
Sheldon Arora was selected by an independent panel of judges. Entrepreneurs were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.
“I am deeply honored to be selected as an Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist. I’m passionate about helping healthcare professionals, facilities, and patients. We’re laser-focused on putting the right candidates in the right positions and making this a much quicker process. The app technology gives the candidate total control and pay transparency, and the efficiency lowers employer costs, ultimately improving patient care,” said Arora.
He added, “The technology is truly revolutionary. Right now it’s being applied to healthcare in the United States but this has applications across industries globally. You’ll see employees finding the jobs that best meet their family needs and employers accessing the highest quality candidates all over the world, and it’s all in one place.”
Regional award winners will be announced on June 24th, during a special celebration. The winners will then be considered by the National judges for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, which will be presented in November at the annual 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 2024.
