We’re proud to announce that Wajam CEO Martin-Luc Archambault was a winner of an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year 2012 Award.

EOY Entrepreneur of the Year 2012

Martin-Luc Archambault was named the winner of the Emerging Entrepreneur award at the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year 2012 in Quebec.

“Martin-Luc has been an innovation spark for Wajam and a key advisor to many Canadian start-ups over the past decade,” said Sylvain Vincent, Ernst & Young Managing Partner in Eastern Canada. “He has set the bar high in terms of creating a small team of brilliant developers to disrupt social search; an area where major market players with between 5,000 to 50,000 employees have yet to develop as easy, comprehensive or compelling a solution.”

Ernst & Young’s Emerging Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. The Canadian program is in its 19th year of honoring the country’s most impressive entrepreneurs from all areas of business. Award Winners are chosen based on their vision, leadership, financial performance and social responsibility.

Thank You from Martin-Luc

“I am honored to be recognized and named the Ernst & Young Emerging Entrepreneur Of The Year® for Quebec. The Wajam team has worked hard in integrating the Wajam social search experience with Google Maps and Safari, and we continue to expand into new social media outlets to improve the user experience. I share this award with my family, the Montreal tech community, our entire Wajam team and all of the entrepreneurs that allowed me to invest in their companies as an angel investor. Wajam will continue to make Canada proud as we bring exciting new applications for social search to business and consumers alike.”

Good job, Marty!!!
