Entrepreneur magazine unveiled the winners of its Entrepreneur of 2010 contest, which was sponsored by UPS. The business owners recognized included to take home the award was Daniel Lubetzky, founder of KIND Healthy Snacks, Allen Kim, founder of Bebarang and Dereck Zobrist, founder of Enovative Kontrol Systems.

“From back-to-basics healthy ideas to creative solutions for everyday issues, this year’s winners offer a glimpse into the multitude of ways entrepreneurs across the country improve our world,” said Amy Cosper, VP and editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “Lubetzky, Zobrist and Kim each define the entrepreneurial spirit—from the way they’ve braved challenges and thrived, taken on risks in the name of an idea, and created opportunities out of what may seem like nothing to everyone else. We’re excited to be able to start the new year by honoring our winners as well as our readers at the 2011 Growth Conference.”

One of the most innovative companies on the list is Evonative Kontrol Systems. According to its website, the firm uses smart controls that turn the pump off of devices when they does not need to run.
