The Judging Process

Judging process

Independent experts from Deloitte will assess all applications, and together with Westpac representatives, will select the 200 Businesses of Tomorrow based on the application criteria.

From the group of 200, the Judging Panel will select the Top 20 Businesses of Tomorrow. This is based on their ability to not only demonstrate their vision through the application criteria, they will also be seen to have greater potential to help tomorrow’s customers, economy and society.
