The selection process

We have developed a scientific process which ensures a highly meritocratic assessment and helps us identify talent's key strengths and potential, taking into account 200+ data points per candidate.

Then, a jury of recognised industry leaders and talent experts will choose the 10 who will make it to the list for each category.

Nomination and application

The selection process starts with a nomination or an application. We give the chance to any individual to either nominate someone they believe has the potential to be on the list or apply themselves.

Anyone should get the chance to be recognized for their merits and talent.

Personal background

We will evaluate candidates' resumé to learn about their achievements, failures and experiences. Don't worry, we know talent is more than just a resumé...

References

We believe that the people who have seen you in action are the ones who know you best. Therefore our process values qualified references who are ready to vouch for you as an outstanding professional or student.
