    Similar to other nominations, there are criteria that one must possess in order to be considered in the list such as the entrepreneur must be at least 38 years old or younger; has five to 15 years of outstanding leadership and achievements; has a commitment to serve the society; and for business candidates, one must hold either of the following titles like President, chair of the board, chief executive officer, managing director, managing partner or publisher.

    After 2015, this is the first time that a Filipino was chosen for the forum again with not just one but two Filipinos in the list. One can really see that Filipinos are now keeping up with other nations when it comes to business and leadership.

    Besides being the CEO of Agrea Agricultural Systems International Inc., a Marinduque-based company, Cherrie Atilano is an advocate of women and youth and has 21 years of experience in agribusiness and agri-technology.

    She also co-founded HATIENDA Holdings Inc., an agritourism space that aims to produce solely Filipino agricultural products for the local and export market. She is also a multi-awarded entrepreneur and ambassador on agricultural issues.

    As for Henry Motte-Muñoz, is created for the youth to help them in every step they are taking through the knowledge of what education holds.

    More than in school knowledge, also provides people an idea about schools, scholarships, online courses, courses or tracks, and so much more. In short, they make school stuff sound a little less scary especially for the young ones that will unfold new chapters in their life.

    More than their businesses and tasks, both Cherrie and Henry aspires to become a good example to the youth and to the nation. Thus, this is only the beginning for them—a beginning where they can create more possibilities and opportunities.
