About these Awards
There is no shortage of award programs honoring entrepreneurs. But most measure the same-old, same-old. Revenues. Growth. That’s not a bad thing…but entrepreneurs deserve more.
We think entrepreneurs should be celebrated for the things they don’t do.
- They don’t follow.
- They ignore conventional wisdom.
- They take the path less traveled.
- They do it the hard way.
They believe rules are meant to be broken.
The RuleBreaker Awards will honor and celebrate those entrepreneurs who have succeeded by doing it their way. Some have created whole new industries; others have revolutionized industries that have existed for hundreds of years.
We’re here to salute those who never shirk from obstacles, don’t fear the unknown and persist – despite the odds.
