May 12, 2022 (VIENNA, VA) – Level Access, the global leader in digital accessibility, is proud to announce that Founder and CEO Tim Springer was named a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2022 Mid-Atlantic Award – one of the preeminent competitive business awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies who think big to succeed. For over twenty years, Tim has guided Level Access to support companies’ accessibility initiatives with industry-leading software solutions, tailored training programs, accessibility audit services, and more.

Following the establishment of Level Access in 1997, Springer and the initial founders set their sights on the goal of enabling all people to achieve their full potential through access to digital technology. Dropping out of Stanford to pursue his dream of digital equality, Tim has devoted himself to achieving that very goal with Level Access. Tim has positioned Level Access as one of the leading digital accessibility solutions, software, and services platforms – ensuring websites and apps have the tools they need to meet compliance and create an equally accessible world.

“I am incredibly honored to be recognized for all we have accomplished for accessibility, and I am thrilled to see what the future holds for Level Access,” said Tim Springer. “Level Access has been through many ups and downs since the initial idea was conceived in a Stanford dorm room, but we stand proud of where we are today. Just like a diamond, the process of growing Level Access into an industry leader took a relentless, iterative process of pressure and time.”

Springer was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges according to the following criteria: entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact – among other core contributions and attributes. Regional winners will be announced on June 29, 2022. The regional winners will then be considered by the National independent judging panel, and National awards will be presented in November at the Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2023.
