AUSTIN, TX, United StatesLearning NewsSchoox

The Gulf South program honors entrepreneurs from Central and South Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi companies.


Learning management and talent development software provider Schoox today announced that their founder and CEO, Lefteris Ntouanoglou, was named an EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2024 Gulf South Award finalist. 

In its 38th year, Entrepreneur Of The Year is the preeminent competitive business award for fearless leaders who disrupt markets, revolutionize sectors and impact lives. Over the past nearly four decades, this program has acknowledged bold entrepreneurs whose big ideas and dauntless actions transform our world.

Lefteris was one of the regional entrepreneurs selected as finalists by an independent panel of judges. Candidates were evaluated on several factors, including their demonstration of building long-term value through an entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other key attributes. 

“I am very honored to be a finalist for this award,” said Lefteris. “I am a passionate believer in lifelong learning and founded Schoox to disrupt the learning and talent development market by creating a mobile-first solution built with the learner in mind.”

Schoox was created to bring people-first learning to workplace technology. The learner experience feels like apps from everyday life—something that works as well on a mobile device as it does on a laptop and can be used to share all kinds of engaging content, just like on social media. This real-world approach is how Schoox has become a market-leading learning vendor.

Regional award winners will be revealed on June 13, 2024, during a special celebration. They will become lifetime members of a respected community of Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world. The regional winners will then be considered by judges for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, presented in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most esteemed gatherings of high-growth, market-leading organizations.
