On June 13, entrepreneurs of the greater Washington area came together in celebration of their accomplishments for the 2019 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Mid-Atlantic Awards at the Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner.

This year’s black-tie gala marked the 33th anniversary of recognizing entrepreneurs for the products and services they provide to their community. What began as a single program out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1986, has grown international — with 25 U.S. programs and now based in more than 60 countries.
