- They must be aged no older than 30 on April 30. - They must have founded or co-founded their own business - The must be actively engaged in entrepreneurial activity (ie, remain working in that business and remain a shareholder in that business - anyone who has sold their business but still manages it is now an employee, not an entrepreneur).
If you have any suggestions, please drop me a note by email ASAP.
