CLEVELAND, October 4, 2021 /vWire/ — Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) announced that Ray Lui and Mary McCann, Co-Founders of Sprinly, were named Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 winners. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies globally. The award recognizes those who are unstoppable entrepreneurial leaders. Lui and McCann were selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was announced during the program’s virtual awards celebration on August 5, 2021.
The judges evaluated many leaders based on six core criteria:
- Entrepreneurial Leadership
- Talent Management
- Degree of Difficulty
- Financial Performance
- Societal Impact
- Originality, Innovation and Future Plans
Sprinly launched in 2016 on a mission to create an honestly healthier society by delivering nutritious and convenient organic plant-based meals to people everywhere. Lui and McCann have built Sprinly to become one of the fastest-growing food brands in the U.S. multiple years in a row with no outside funding and with only their initial investment of $25,000 each.
“We ensure that all of our meals are both nutritious and delicious – our product will always differentiate our brand,” said Mary McCann, Co-Founder & COO. “Our team has crafted every meal to appeal to all types of individuals who follow many different diets, and we’re glad to see that the majority of our clients are omnivores, which further reflects the huge market potential ahead of us.”
For 35 years, EY has honored entrepreneurs whose ambition, courage, and ingenuity have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Lui and McCann will go on into the EY Hall of Fame alongside many other great entrepreneurs and alumni.
