Judging Process

The judging process will take place in four stages:

  • The first stage will be the evaluation of your motivation. If you do not hear back from them (within a specific period), please deem your nomination as unsuccessful.
  • The second stage will require potential candidates to submit more documentation for the next stage of assessment.
  • The third stage will include an analysis of your financials, revenue model and credibility as in-depth research will be conducted into who you are and your company/team (no criminal records, troubling lawsuits/bankruptcies, allegations of crime, bad behavior, sexual harassment/abuse or fraud).
  • The final stage will have an expert panel of judges assess the strong candidates, whittling them down to the final 30. The editorial and research team makes the final selection based on judges’ scoring/remarks and adjusts for diversity across company type, gender, background, etc.
