The objective of this competition is to introduce important business personalities who bring positive changes to the entrepreneurial environment of the country to the general public and in this way to support further progress of entrepreneurship.

    The international jury, created by the winners and finalists of the previous years, decided directly at the venue and its decision was announced during the ceremonial gala evening on Saturday (8th June). All title-holders from individual countries were introduced during the gala evening. Vladimír Levársky was introduced to the Hall of Fame of the Entrepreneur Of The Year competition together with other finalists. At the stage he encountered face-to-face the chairman of the Ernst & Young Board of Directors Mark Weinberger. 

    “We Slovaks can hardly compete by our turnover in a world-wide competition, but in spite of that we are innovative, we can offer a lot and for me the stories of the businessmen were very inspiring, “ Vladimír Levársky who took part in the ceremonial week of assessments and declaration of results together with his son, a promising successor of his entrepreneurial path, evaluated the situation in this way.

    "There are many connections between Slovakia and Sudan. During my short visit I have met many people who have previously studied in our country or who are aware of the quality of products made in Slovakia. The African continent offers an enourmous potential in lighting. A number of great investments have been announced in Sudan and neighbouring countries, and OMS wants to be as close to its local clients as possible. Our latest portfolio of high quality, eco products will offer a strong alternative to cheap but unsustainable imports.
