Nominees must be citizens of one of the 54 African countries and their business must be based in an African country. Nominees must be entrepreneurs who have built businesses that employ at least 4 people. Ideally, the companies they have built should be profitable, but if they are yet to break even, they must have incredible prospects for the near future. For instance, if an entrepreneur has raised a significant round of funding from investors, but is yet to turn a profit, he or she is of interest. And they must be ethical and socially responsible people, because entrepreneurs must help not just themselves but those around them.
