They are currently opening nominations for both U.S./Canada and Europe Lists. Nomination of the candidate must be done for the region in which they are the most prominent. This could be based on region of incorporation, majority of sales, residence, etc. Citizenship is not a requirement.

For the U.S./Canada list, there are 20 categories: Art & Style, Consumer Tech, Education, Energy, Enterprise Tech, Finance, Food & Drink, Games, Healthcare, Hollywood & Entertainment, Law & Policy, Manufacturing & Industry, Marketing & Advertising, Media, Music, Retail & Commerce, Science, Social Entrepreneurs, Sports, Venture Capital.
