ATLANTA, June 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Brandon Mintz, President and CEO of Bitcoin Depot®, the largest and fastest growing cryptocurrency ATM network, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 Southeast Award finalist. Now in its 35th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors unstoppable business leaders whose ambition, ingenuity, and courage shines in the face of adversity.
Mintz was selected by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced during a special virtual celebration on July 29, 2021, where they will become lifetime members of an esteemed community of Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world.
Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The nominees are evaluated based on nine criteria: entrepreneurial leadership, talent management, degree of difficulty, financial performance, societal impact, company values, originality, innovation, and future plans.
The Bitcoin Depot® ATM network gives users the opportunity to exchange cash or credit cards online for cryptocurrency, allowing for simple, in-person exchanges that give users immediate buying power. The brand currently operates nearly 3,000 ATMs across the world and expects to see 200% growth in 2021.
“It is an honor to be recognized as an Entrepreneur Of The Year finalist,” said Mintz. “Leading Bitcoin Depot® to its tremendous success over the last difficult year would not have been possible without the team I surround myself with. They have worked tirelessly to achieve our tremendous growth and I expect even more progress through the rest of this year.”
Since its launch, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world. Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, to be announced in November 2021 at the Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2022.
