BoardPAC yet again reached another milestone by signing the contract with Ernst & Young (EY) as its technology supporting solutions provider, for the board meeting automation solution at its World Entrepreneur Of The Year (WEOY) program held recently in Monaco covering 47 countries across the globe, and Entrepreneur Of The Year (EOY) program held this year in over 145 cities in more than 60 countries. 

With this onboarding, BoardPAC became one of EY’s key promoters for its WEOY and EOY programs held this year. BoardPAC was instrumental in the judging process and the announcement of this year’s EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019 winner. 

EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year is the world’s most prestigious business awards program for entrepreneurs. The program celebrates the mould-breakers of the world – the boldest entrepreneurs who know you can’t create new growth by following the old models. People who look for new solutions, combinations, and possibilities. 

EY is a multinational professional services firm headquartered in London, United Kingdom. EY is one of the largest professional services firms in the world and is one of the ‘Big Four’ accounting firms.

EY Sri Lanka Country Managing Partner Ruwan Fernando said, “EY Sri Lanka is committed to help our entrepreneurs. One way we do this is by giving them access to our global networks. I nominated Lakmini from Sri Lanka to our EY Winning Women Program, which mentors women entrepreneurs who wish to scale globally. I am very happy and proud to note that EY itself has recognised the potential of her product – BoardPAC and has come forward as the first user of this product in a competition, where BoardPAC is being used in 60 countries by the panel of judges in the EY Entrepreneur of the Year judging process. Lakmini is definitely on her way to being a global entrepreneur, and we are happy that EY Sri Lanka is able to help her succeed.”

EY Sri Lanka Partner Anoji de Silva said, “The EY Winning Women Program mentors the winners and also give them access to global platforms to promote their products. As Lakmini’s Program Host, I was impressed at how she made use of the opportunity given to her, to network and build effective connections and promote her product. The EY World Entrepreneur Judges are globally recognised entrepreneurs and business leaders. This opportunity she got with EY using BoardPAC on the judging process will give her tremendous product exposure to a truly global audience.”

BoardPAC CEO Lakmini Wijesundera, a former EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women (EWW) Asia-Pacific program in 2017 as a top women entrepreneur in the region said, “We are excited and honoured to be a part of the WEOY and EOY programme as the technology supporting solutions provider for EY, and we look forward to working with them in the future.”
