The selection committee included senior executives from Ernst & Young and academic experts from Fudan University School of Management. It holistically evaluates the candidates based on their “capacity for sustained growth,” “international development potential,” “demonstrated competitive advantage” and other categories. As a result, 28 companies were listed winners, among which 23 were honored the “Most Promising Company” Award and five received the “Most Promising Seeded Company” Award.
