Ovation Fertility Co-Founder and CEO Nate Snyder Named EY Entrepreneur Of The Year in Greater Los Angeles

Ovation® Fertility Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Nate Snyder has received the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Award in the Health and Wellness category in Greater Los Angeles. As the world’s most prestigious business awards program for entrepreneurs, Entrepreneur Of The Year recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities, while also transforming our world. Snyder was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special black-tie awards gala at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on June 20, 2019.

Ovation Fertility, founded in 2015, is a national network of reproductive endocrinologists and scientific thought leaders, collaborating within a unique business model to deliver vertically integrated embryology, andrology, genetic testing, donor services, reproductive materials storage, off-site laboratory direction, and surrogacy services.

“While I’m honored to be recognized as Entrepreneur of the Year, this award was won by the ‘Ovation Nation,’” Snyder says. “I wouldn’t have been nominated if the company weren’t excelling, and that success comes from the collective effort of a great team of physicians, scientists and administrators that are driving Ovation to advance the state of the art in fertility care.”

As Ovation CEO, and building on nearly 20 years of tech and healthcare experience, Snyder partners with the world’s most respected fertility physicians and scientists to build a nationwide network of leading-edge in vitro fertilization (IVF) and genetic testing laboratories. The company’s goal is to reduce families’ overall cost of having a healthy baby through fertility treatment by adopting highly efficient and effective treatment standards that produce the most viable embryos.

As a Greater Los Angeles award winner, Snyder is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019 National Awards. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 16, 2019.

Now in its 33rd year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program recognizes business leaders in more than 145 cities and more than 60 countries.
