The Executive Chairperson of India-based Biocon Limited Dr. Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw named EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year 2020 at virtual award ceremony on Thursday, June 5.

Kiran was picked from among 46 award winners from 41 countries and territories vying for the world title. In the award’s 20-year history, Kiran becomes the third EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winner from India.

She follows former Indian world title winners Uday Kotak of Kotak Mahindra Bank (2014) and Narayana Murthy of Infosys Technologies Limited (2005). She also becomes the second woman to hold the title, following Olivia Lum of Hyflux Limited from Singapore in 2011.
