The award is open to businesses that operate in any sector. 

Nominations for this award must demonstrate that the business is innovative and has the capability to disrupt the market or industry and must clearly show that the investment has facilitated the scaling-up of the company. Both the business and the Angel and VC investors should be identified for the award.
