Rising Star - Company
The Rising Star Company recognizes the achievements of either a genuine startup business or an existing business that has moved into a brand new field. Elbowing into a new space in an already crowded industry takes guts, flawless execution, brilliant marketing and a tremendous organizational ability to learn fast.
Judges will look for businesses that have used these skills to establish themselves as equal to—or better than—existing players in any energy industry field or discipline. Typical entrants might include, for example, companies with a regional or country focus that have successfully positioned themselves on the world stage, engineering or trading startups, or businesses that have moved their entire focus upstream or downstream within a given industry.
Note: Judges cannot consider as “newcomers” businesses that have been divested from larger companies or businesses built through mergers whose primary effect has been a change of scale. Mergers that have created genuinely new businesses will be considered.
In the interests of evaluating track records, judges will consider businesses created since January 2007.
