Dougan Clarke of Tuuci named finalist in Entrepreneur of the Year awards

Dougan Clarke, founder, CEO and chief product designer at Tucci, has been named an Entrepreneur Of The Year 2024 Florida Award finalist by Ernst & Young LLP.

The Florida program celebrates entrepreneurs from Florida and Puerto Rico. Now in its 38th year, Entrepreneur Of The Year is the preeminent competitive business award for audacious leaders who disrupt markets, revolutionize sectors and have a transformational impact on lives. Over the past four decades, the program has recognized daring entrepreneurs with big ideas and bold actions that reshape our world.

Clarke was one of 22 regional entrepreneurs selected as finalists by an independent panel of judges. The candidates were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.

“I’m grateful to be recognized as an Entrepreneur Of the Year 2024 Florida Award finalist,” says Clarke. “It’s an honor to lead and grow the exceptional team we’ve built at Tuuci, and I couldn’t be more excited for the journey ahead.”

Entrepreneur Of The Year honors many different types of business leaders for their ingenuity, courage and entrepreneurial spirit. The program celebrates original founders who bootstrapped their business from inception or who raised outside capital to grow their company, transformational CEOs who infused innovation into an existing organization to catapult its trajectory, and multigenerational family business leaders who reimagined a legacy business model to fortify it for the future.

Regional award winners will be announced June 14 during a special celebration and will become lifetime members of an esteemed community of Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world. The winners will then be considered by the national judges for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, which will be presented in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies.
