E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year Award Gala

Joya founders Karl Müller and Claudio Minder were nominated as finalists for this year’s Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award Switzerland – the largest and most prestigious award for entrepreneurial work.


The winners were announced at a grand award gala at the Samsung Hall in Zurich. One of the highlights was a live broadcast at Joya’s headquarters in Roggwil, where the team was busy keeping their fingers crossed while cheering.

The two entrepreneurs secured a place of honor in the Service & Trade category for “successfully getting the comfort shoe out of the orthopedic corner”.

Google Maps inventor Stefan Muff won the category Service & Trade – congratulations!


„Together we are chasing our vision and move mountains – this award is best proof. Being one of the top 3 entrepreneurs in Switzerland is something very special and a milestone, which is difficult to achieve on your own. Therefore, there is a strong team behind every successful company. Without our team our success wouldn’t be possible. Special thanks to the entire Joya team, which is continuously advancing the goal of enabling people to walk painlessly.“ – Karl Müller and Claudio Minder
