Sarah Kaddour · September 8, 2020

HOUSTON, August 2020 – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) announced that founders of NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care were named Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 Gulf Coast Area Award finalists. Now in its 34th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors entrepreneurial business leaders whose ambitions deliver innovation, growth, and prosperity as they build and sustain successful businesses that transform our world.

Award winners will be announced through a special virtual event on October 6, 2020 and will join a lifelong community of esteemed Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world. This year, unstoppable entrepreneurs who have provided extraordinary support for their communities, employees, and others during the COVID-19 crisis will also be recognized for their courage, resilience, and ingenuity.

Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The nominees are evaluated based on six criteria, including overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management.

Inc. Magazine ranked NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care No. 4696 with an impressive growth rate of 64.35% on its 39th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This is Nightlight’s seventh consecutive year on the Inc. 5000 list.

The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small and mid-sized businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.  The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.

In recognizing small businesses for their achievements, NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care was also recognized virtually at the annual U.S. Small Business Administration Small Business Awards on September 8, 2020 as Minority Small Business of the Year.

“We are very grateful to be recognized by these prestigious organizations.  Winning these awards gives us the confidence to know we are headed in the right direction.  We would like to thank our amazing team for doing the work that makes this company standout,” says Zawadi Bryant, CEO and Co-Founder of Nightlight Pediatric Urgent Care.
