EnPoint CEO is one of 18 Atlantic finalists up for EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 Award

Updated: Aug 30, 2023

EY Canada is honoured to announce the regional finalists in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 program today. Selected by an independent panel of judges, businesses from each Canadian region have been recognized for transforming our world through unbounded innovation, growth and prosperity.  “This year’s finalists are creating innovative business models to withstand tough market pressures amid a challenging economic and geopolitical landscape,” says Rachel Rodrigues, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Canada Program Director. “From financial services and biotechnology to fashion and homewares, the diversity in both the industries and the entrepreneurs is a true testament to the inclusivity and excellence of Canada’s vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem.” Brine shares, "this June marked 5 years in business for EnPoint and 5 years of entrepreneurship for me; it's been a rollercoaster for sure but most of all, I am proud of the 60,000+ people we've helped, 80+ mentorship programs we've been a part of, and relentless drive of my team to do more. Helping people build confidence, skills, and connections that support them having a meaningful career is something I will always be proud of; life is too short for anything else. That kind of career doesn't happen by accident or without hard work." Now in its 29th year in Canada, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program fosters, links and empowers Canadian entrepreneurs as they transform innovative concepts into influential businesses that make a significant impact both nationally and globally. The program works in tandem with EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ and Entrepreneurs Access Network to help businesses grow, scale and overcome ever-evolving challenges, while building an equitable and inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem for all. Our entrepreneurial ecosystem brings together winning participants with innovative business leaders, facilitating connections and ideation across all industries and sectors. “Whether they’re shaking up established industries or launching fresh ventures, these entrepreneurs are actively adapting to evolving market dynamics and customer expectations to propel sustainable growth,” says Rodrigues. “We’re excited to celebrate all of their achievements as they rise to the challenge of addressing our most pressing issues by delivering new solutions to market — all the while creating jobs and fuelling economic prosperity.” "I'm grateful that I get to wake up and each day do work I care about, building EnPoint with passionate clients, partners, and a committed team, says Brine. I was reminded by a few wise mentors of mine that awards like these help us pause, reflect, and celebrate the hard-earned milestones and scars (aka lessons learned) on the journey to date. Thank you to EY for this recognition and for the platform to share more about the work we're doing at EnPoint."
