Entrepreneur of the Year 2007

The entrepreneur has always been a subject of fascination, and the success of TV shows such as Dragon's Den and The Apprentice has only further cemented the appeal of self-made business people. Entrepreneurship has never been sexier. But while sparring with potential investors or grovelling before a pouty man with a comb-over may make for good television, the reality is that succeeding in the cutthroat world of business takes more smarts, passion and fearlessness than could ever be captured by a few strategically placed cameras. The winners and finalists of Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year Pacific Region program, selected through a rigorous process involving a top accounting firm and a tough panel of business veterans, have risen to the top of their respective fields by navigating a fine balance of level-headedness, intuition and audacity. Yes, it makes for a good story. But even more importantly, it makes for a strong and vibrant economy. Click on the links below and meet the leaders who are raising the bar to new heights. Winners:
