We want your help finding America’s best young entrepreneurs. In each of the last five years, we’ve profiled 25 companies run by men and women no more than 25 years old. By definition, the companies we’re looking for are young, and while there have been a handful of stars such as Facebook, most are little known. We depend on our community of readers to alert us to others around the country that hold big potential.
Here’s how it works:
1. You send us companies that meet our criteria via the form below by July 26.
2. Bloomberg Businessweek reporters and editors sift through the suggestions and interview the most promising ones.
3. We post profiles of 25 finalists in the fall.
4. Readers vote for the companies they think are the most promising, and we announce the five that get the most votes.
We’ll only consider U.S.-based companies in which all the co-founders are no older than 25 on July 26, 2010. (That means that if you or your co-founder was born before July 26, 1984, you’re over the cutoff.) Companies should be prepared to disclose their revenue for 2009 and projected revenue for 2010. And we’ll also ask finalists for a photo.
That’s it. Suggest companies in the form below. We’ll start interviewing the most promising after July 26.
For a look at the 2009 finalists, flip through this slide show.
