Top 10 nominees in each of 13 categories will emerge from these pre-jury rounds. Post this, most-promising MSMEs will be chosen in the final jury round, expected to take place on November 11, 2011 in New Delhi.

Speaking about the selection process, Mr. Dinesh Agarwal, Founder & CEO,, said, “The massive response from MSMEs across the nation highlights that they are gung-ho about the Awards. With pre-jury rounds about to begin, we too are curious to see who would emerge victorious in the end as these are some of the brightest MSMEs in the country. We wish them the best."

Ernst & Young, as a process advisor, has shortlisted top 70 in each category out of which top 20 will appear for pre-jury round. The pre-jury will then assess these entries and select top 10 in each category for the final jury round. Post this, the grand jury will meet these successful MSMEs and choose the winners amongst them whose names will be disclosed at the felicitation ceremony slated to be held on 28th November, 2011 at Intercontinental The Lalit, Mumbai.
