Entrepreneurs are at the heart of eBay’s business. Starting, maintaining, and growing a business is no easy task, and eBay recognizes the work that sellers put in.
In Canada, eBay recognized sellers for the 15th annual Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. And in Mexico, the inaugural celebration was a chance to recognize entrepreneurs in the country who leveraged the eBay marketplace platform to reach new customers around the globe.
“As an enabler of and champion for small businesses, we’re proud to be celebrating and supporting the very best in Canadian and Mexican entrepreneurialism on eBay. Every day, we see businesses using eBay to diversify and expand into new markets, grow sales and contribute to their local economies – the award selection process is always difficult and this year was no exception!”
