SALT LAKE CITY – HeroDevs proudly announces that our CEO, Aaron Frost, has been named a finalist for the prestigious Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2024 Mountain West Award. This nomination recognizes his visionary leadership and commitment to creating a secure and sustainable future through innovative open-source software solutions.

Since founding HeroDevs, Aaron (affectionately known to the team as Frosty) has pioneered the conversation around legacy open source software, ensuring they remain secure, compliant, and functional in today’s fast-evolving tech landscape. Under his leadership, HeroDevs has emerged as a critical player in the tech industry. It is particularly renowned for its Never-Ending Support (NES) initiatives that allow companies to securely use their existing sunsetted open source software within their tech stacks without migrating or updating. 

Frosty’s strategic foresight and passion for sustainable technology and practical solutions have led HeroDevs to become a leader in supporting open source software past its end of life, providing a viable option many businesses rely on to stay secure, compliant, and compatible without spending millions to upgrade to a modern alternative. 

“It's very exciting to put your head down and work very hard to build something meaningful, and then after a few years you come up for air and you're being nominated for EY's Entrepreneur of the Year award,” Frosty said about the nomination. “The opportunity to grow this business, serve my employees, keep my customers safe, and donate millions to the open source community has been one of the biggest honors of my life. This nomination is a great reminder of how far we have come, and I am grateful for it.”

"This year's finalists are bold entrepreneurs creating a lasting impression in their industries and communities," said Jim Wilson, Partner and Entrepreneur Of The Year Mountain West Program Co-Director. "Selected by an independent panel of judges, these trailblazers demonstrate unwavering dedication to their companies, customers, and communities. We are delighted to recognize their successes."

The winners will be announced at a special gala event at the end of June 2024. 

HeroDevs and the entire team congratulate Frosty on this well-deserved recognition and look forward to continuing to innovate and inspire in the tech community under his leadership.
