To be eligible to enter the program, the nominee must be an owner or the manager primarily responsible for the recent performance of the company, and an active member of senior management. The nominee’s company must be at least two years old.
Anyone associated with a successful entrepreneur – professional advisor, customer, supplier, banker, lawyer, employee or spouse – may nominate the individual. Entrepreneurs can also nominate themselves – after all, entrepreneurs know their achievements better than anyone else. All information submitted on the nomination form will be kept strictly confidential and will only be used by an independent panel of judges for the selection process. Only the winners selected by the panel will be announced to the public.
