Entrepreneur Of The Year celebrates ambitious entrepreneurs who are shaping the future

CHICAGO, May 7 – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Vadim Vladimirskiy, CEO and co-founder of Nerdio, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2024 Midwest Award finalist. Nerdio is a premier solution for organizations of all sizes looking to manage and cost-optimize native Microsoft cloud technologies. After co-founding IT services company Adar, Vladimirskiy founded Nerdio to meet the needs of managed service providers and enterprise organizations looking to build a successful cloud practice in Microsoft Azure. Under Vladimirskiy’s leadership, Nerdio raised $117M in its Series B led by Updata Partners at the end of 2022 and doubled its annual recurring revenue in 2023, influencing more than $225 million of Azure consumption annually.

"I am humbled by the nomination as a finalist for the Entrepreneur of the Year® Midwest Award, which acknowledges Nerdio's remarkable journey of growth,” said Vadim Vladimirskiy, CEO, Nerdio. “Our success is a testament to the relentless pursuit of innovation, fueled by a deep-rooted passion for technology and entrepreneurship. Being recognized as a finalist is a tribute to our shared vision and the impact we strive to make in the world of technology.”

In April 2024, Nerdio unveiled AI-powered capabilities and automation updates to its flagship product, Nerdio Manager, to further innovation for IT teams using Microsoft cloud technologies. An engineer at heart, Vladimirskiy is dedicated to putting technology excellence at the forefront of Nerdio’s mission while driving success for Nerdio customers such as Teleperformance, British Columbia Lottery Association, The University of North Florida, Make-A-Wish UK, Equitable Bank, and more.

Vladimirskiy was one of 30 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. Entrepreneur Of The Year honors many different types of business leaders for their ingenuity, courage and entrepreneurial spirit.

“Updata Partners has had the privilege of working alongside Vadim and couldn't be prouder of his exceptional ability to transform Nerdio into a pioneering force within the DaaS space. Vadim's visionary leadership continues to inspire us all, and we eagerly anticipate the continued success of Nerdio under his guidance,” said Carter Griffin, General Partner at Updata Partners.
