- Basics of how long in business, number of employees
- Business philosophy / mission statement
- Sales performance over the past three years / WHY (important to know the reasons for sales increases or decreases)
- What makes your business unique

Selection Process: Video submissions are used as a basis for industry voting. Only industry professionals are allowed to vote. The top 3 finalists are determined and announced after all votes are verified and counted.
Award Process: The winner (based on the highest number of verified votes) is announced at the Mobile Electronics Industry Awards gathering in August. The business receives an award and certificate, as well as a digital certificate and logos for marketing.
