Last week, Ernst & Young awarded Joe Kiani, one of our TEDxChapmanU speakers, the 2012 OC Entrepreneur of the Year award. Joe was one of five local entrepreneurs to receive the coveted award out of more than 70 nominees. This also makes Joe eligible for the national Entrepreneur of the Year award presented in November.
Along with Joe, Mike Morhaime, CEO, president and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment, Andy Fathollahi, CEO of Incipio, Gary Jabara, CEO and founder of Mobilitie, and John Raymont, CEO, president and founder of Kurion received the award.
We would like to congratulate all five of these OC icons, and wish them the best of luck in the national competition. You can read the Ernst & Young announcement here.
