Announcement of TiE Ohio's "International Entrepreneurs" Award Winners for 2010

September 27, 2010 – TiE Ohio (The International Entrepreneur) presented its International Entrepreneur Awards Ceremony last week where approximately two hundred attendees celebrated local and foreign born entrepreneurs. The awards were created to recognize the achievements of international entrepreneurs and businesses helping to reshape and rebuild Ohio’s business landscape and to highlight how international entrepreneurs contribute to the local economy.
Baiju Shah, President of BioEnterprise and Co-Chair of TiE Ohio, welcomed the audience by highlighting the importance of TiE Ohio in building an ecosystem of immigrant and internationally-minded entrepreneurs. Celebrating the triumphs of local entrepreneurs, like Monte Ahuja, helps to inspire others and promote an entrepreneurial culture.


The Awards Committee, led by TiE Ohio Charter Member and Board Member Radhika Reddy from Ariel Ventures, considered various factors in the selection process, including nominees’ U.S. and international sales, number of jobs created, innovation in starting a business, and involvement and leadership in the community.
Winners of the award in four categories were announced at the ceremony. Ellis Yan (Technical Consumer Products) won in the Immigrant Entrepreneur category (an immigrant entrepreneur who has launched a successful business in Ohio). Other finalists were Jeeva Akr from Electron Database Corp and Dr. Hiroyuki Fujita from Quality Electrodynamics.
Marlin Younker from US Endoscopy won in the International Entrepreneur category (an American-born entrepreneur who has expanded their business internationally). Other finalists were A.J. Hyland from Hyland Software and Al Miller from Miller Weldmaster.
The winner in the Foreign Direct Investment category (an international business that has established and expanded its business operations in Ohio) is Philips Healthcare. Other finalists were Roechling Glastic Composites and TATA Consulting Services.
In the Ohio international business category (an Ohio-headquartered multinational business that has expanded its business globally) Keithley Instruments was announced as the winner. Other finalists were Steris and Veyance Technologies.
In addition to this year's finalists, Alan Schonberg, Co-Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Management Recruiters International, and Maria Pujana, M.D. President of Marise Jewelry Designs were presented with the TiE Community Catalyst Award for their efforts to make the region more globally connected. Mr. Schonberg stressed the importance of welcoming immigrant entrepreneurs to the region to help revive the economy.
