May 07, 2019 | By John Siegel

A big year for FloQast just got a little bigger.

After guiding the company to a top spot on Built In LA’s prestigious 100 best places to work in Los Angeles and an International Cloud Computing Awards Program for Best Cloud HR, Payroll, or ERP Solution, FloQast Co-founder and CEO Mike Whitmire was named as a semifinalist for EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019 Award for the Greater Los Angeles area!

Each year, the Entrepreneur of the Year program takes place in more than 145 cities in 60 countries around the world, with past winners representing a diverse number of industries and product categories. Selected by a panel of independent judges, Mike will be joining a prominent list of local founders all helping establish Los Angeles as a powerhouse in the global tech community.

“I am honored to be selected as an EY Entrepreneur of the Year semifinalist as it reflects the enormous accomplishments and momentum that the  FloQast team has achieved in simplifying and accelerating critical accounting processes for rapidly growing organizations such as Yelp, Zillow, and DocuSign,” said Mike — who was named to CPA Practice Advisor’s 20 Under 40 Vendor Superstars 2018 — in a statement. “FloQast’s success is also a testament to the growing opportunity for B2B technology companies in Los Angeles and it is with great pride that we represent this vibrant and exciting market.”

The winners will be announced at a black-tie gala on Thursday, June 20, 2019, at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.

Best of luck, Mike!
