June 30, 2023 // Franchising.com // GURNEE, IL – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) announced today that Shelly Sun of BrightStar Care was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year ® 2023 Midwest Award winner. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. Sun was selected by an independent judging panel made up of previous award winners, leading CEOs, investors, and other regional business leaders. The candidates were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact among other core contributions and attributes.

I am passionate about empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs and am thrilled that my leadership as a female founder is being recognized through this prestigious honor.”
