Photos from the Digicel Entrepreneur of the Year Event at the Green Library

On November 11, 2010 Florida International University's Steven and Dorothea Green Library was the site of a dinner and ceremony honoring the 24 finalists of the inaugural Digicel Entrepreneur of the Year Awards Program.

The nominees were evaluated according to strict enterprise criteria, including the company's strategic direction, financial performance, record of innovation, and -- crucially, given the perilous state of Haiti -- its impact on the wider community.

The ceremony featured Haitian art and artifacts loaned specifically for the event, plus a four-course dinner and Haitian drumming. The award finalists were at the university on a three-day CEO retreat sponsored by the school. Florida International University President Mark B. Rosenberg, Ambassador Steven J. Green, Green Family Foundation President Kimberly Green, and Digicel's Director of Human Resources Bryan Gonzales were among the speakers.
