iLobby® CEO Ariel Mashiyev is honored to be recognized as the Scotiabank “Entrepreneur of the Year” by the Canada Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CANIE) Awards which celebrate excellence in innovation and entrepreneurship.

With hundreds of nominations from across Canada, the Innovators & Entrepreneurs Foundation (IEF), in collaboration with Startup Canada, will be recognizing outstanding Canadian innovators and entrepreneurs this month.

“The strong team we have built continually strives to excel in both the forward-thinking solutions that we create and the customer experience we provide,” said Ariel Mashiyev. “iLobby continues to challenge the status quo in order to redefine the workplaces of tomorrow, and this recognition is an acknowledgment of our team’s persistence.”

In light of COVID-19, the 2020 CANIE Awards are celebrating entrepreneurship with a Digital Tour across Canada, with 5 regional live-stream events that feature keynote speakers and share their stories of resilience. The awards gala brings together trail-blazing Canadian entrepreneurs to inspire present and aspiring entrepreneurs to become leaders with an innovative and global mindset in order to help build our future.

The CANIE Awards 2020 Digital Tour will showcase stories of resilience during challenging times, while bringing awareness to the importance of community building in order to survive and grow through crisis. By bringing Canadian entrepreneurs together through a memorable event, the gala aims to create a learning opportunity that will inspire entrepreneurs.

“Some of the best innovations come during difficult times, but you should never stop moving forward and challenging conventional practices,” said Ariel Mashiyev. “We’ve overcome a lot through simple hard work and determination, and have grown the company from a simple sign-in app to a global leader in the enterprise visitor management industry.” Register here to join iLobby CEO Ariel Mashiyev online at the Ontario regional awards on May 28th for a live Q&A as he shares the iLobby story.
