SEATTLE - June 17, 2019 - Accolade and EY today announced that Rajeev Singh, CEO of Accolade, a personalized advocacy solution for employers and their members, received the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Award in the Innovator category, Pacific Northwest region. As the world's most prestigious business awards program for entrepreneurs, Entrepreneur Of The Year recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities, while also transforming our world. Singh was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a black-tie gala event in Seattle on June 14.
“Entrepreneurship in the Pacific Northwest is a journey we're all on together, pulling for each other, and I'm honored to represent the region on this stage with these exceptional innovators,” said Singh. “Entrepreneurship is in the fabric of this region, and you can feel its energy within the people and the work we're doing at Accolade. We're heads down trying to change healthcare in this country - it's a lofty goal but healthcare is too complex, costly and doesn't get the outcomes we all deserve. We appreciate opportunities to elevate our mission across the country and share the entrepreneurial spirit that thrives at Accolade.”
Now in its 33rd year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries.
