Dialexa Co-Founders Scott Harper (CEO) and Mark Haidar (Chairman) have been named finalists for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year® 2016 Southwest Award.

The EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards

EY Entrepreneur of the Year is the world’s most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs. In its 30th straight year, this awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who have demonstrated excellence and success in a number of areas including innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their business communities.

Finalists are appointed by a panel of independent judges and winners of the Southwest region will be announced at a special event on June 25th in Dallas, TX. With business leaders in more than 145 cities across 60 countries recognized, we are honored to have both of our Co-Founders listed as finalists for this year’s award.

How Did We Get Here?

Scott Harper and Mark Haidar founded Dialexa believing in building a better world through technology innovation. With a relentless focus on helping companies adapt to B2B disruption and digital transformation, the two Co-Founders instilled a set of values in the company that enable unmatched end-to-end technology product development.

These values are what have propelled Scott Harper and Mark Haidar to the forefront of entrepreneurial innovation:

  • Honesty: if it’s not true, don’t say it.
  • Transparency: open dialogue is the oxygen that great companies and great ideas breathe.
  • Integrity: doing the right thing even if no one is watching.
  • Excellence: success is a product of execution, not luck.
  • Creative and intellectual freedom: the status quo is never scared.
  • Hunger: big results require big ambition.
  • Resilience: greatness requires toughness.
  • Trust: believe in each other, and strive to be worthy of that belief.

We know that building lovable products, not just usable products, is what will separate Dialexa customers from their competitors. With the news of our Co-Founders being recognized as EY Entrepreneur of the Year finalists, our belief in the Dialexa mission is only further validated.

What’s Next for EY Entrepreneur of the Year?

If Scott and Mark win the Southwest regional award, they will become eligible for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year National program award. The National award winners will be announced later this year on November 19th at the EY Entrepreneur of the Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, CA.

On behalf of the entire Dialexa team, we wish both Scott and Mark the best of luck.
