NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SmartAsset, the web’s go-to resource for financial advice connecting consumers with financial advisors, today announced that its Co-Founder and CEO, Michael Carvin, has been named an Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 New York Award winner. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is among the most prestigious awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. Carvin was selected by an independent panel of judges for his entrepreneurial leadership, originality, innovation, societal impact, financial performance, and building a values-based company.
“The Entrepreneur Of The Year Award is the highest honor available to entrepreneurs, but this award truly recognizes what our team has built and accomplished throughout the last decade at SmartAsset,” said Michael Carvin, Co-Founder and CEO of SmartAsset. “With a recent valuation of over $1 billion and accelerating growth, this award is testament to the commitment, dedication, positive impact, and hard work of the more than 200 entrepreneurs at SmartAsset. The award is also personally meaningful because my mother won a similar award for Black entrepreneurs in Europe more than 20 years ago. This award honors her memory and all of the hardworking moms in the world.”
For 35 years, EY US has honored entrepreneurs whose ambition, courage and ingenuity have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Carvin will go on to become a lifetime member of the esteemed multi-industry community of award winners, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of fellow alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries — all supported by vast EY resources.
As a New York award winner, Carvin is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2021 National Awards, which will be announced in November at the Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies.
