The 2012 TiE International Entrepreneur Awards were created to recognize the achievements of international entrepreneurs helping to reshape and rebuild Ohio’s business landscape and to highlight how international entrepreneurs contribute to the local economy.
Yana Schottenstein, President of Access 2 Interpreters, was one of the finalists for the Immigrant Entrepreneur Award which recognized an entrepreneur who was born outside the U.S. and started his or her company in Ohio.
Award criteria considered in selecting the finalists include business success (revenue generated, capital raised, jobs created, progress with international vendors, entering new markets), impact and leadership in the Ohio community, and the innovation and creativity demonstrated in structuring the business. The Finalists are profiled in the September/October issue of Inside Business Magazine.
