2023 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist


DALLAS – April 25, 2023 – Lone Star Analysis, a trusted provider of leading-edge predictive and prescriptive analytics and Evolved AI®  (EAI®),  is proud to announce that President and COO, Matthew Bowers, has been listed as a finalist for Ernst & Young LLP’s (EY US) Entrepreneur of the Year award, a preeminent competitive business award for transformative entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who are building a more equitable, sustainable and prosperous world for all.

“It is an honor to be nominated for such a prestigious award and represent an incredibly smart and talented group of individuals who work at Lone Star,” said Matthew Bowers, President, and COO, of Lone Star Analysis. “I am very proud of our accomplishments and growth but am especially pleased with the positive outcomes we have helped our clients achieve.”

To be considered for this noteworthy award, applicants must be nominated by an industry peer and then selected by an independent panel of judges. Entrepreneurs are evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.

The Entrepreneur Of The Year program has recognized more than 11,000 entrepreneurs throughout the US since its inception in 1986. It has grown to recognize business leaders across 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.

With 63% growth in 2022, Bowers has led Lone Star Analysis in a promising direction. Bowers has helped the team make significant strides in the past few years with the introduction of new solutions, the expansion of the company’s Texas-based headquarters, the opening of subsidiaries in the UK and Norway, which dramatically increased its customer base, and the launch of a new R&D division, Cipher Alchemy.

Regional award winners will be announced on June 24 during a special celebration. 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. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2024.
