With the number of applicants for the Business Record's Forty Under 40 going up every year, it's only natural that one of the questions we get asked the most is, "how do you pick the 40 honorees?"

To help demystify the process, Business Record Publisher Chris Conetzkey asks BPC Vice President Jason Swanson to explain how the selection process works, who does the judging and what the judges are looking for.

If you have more questions about Forty Under 40, feel free to reach out directly to Swanson at (515) 244-9490 or by email at jasonswanson@bpcdm.com. Learn about Forty Under 40 here
