What are the greatest candidate challenges during the selection process? 

Candidates that make it on the show are going up against their competition. We don't always feature the candidates with the most employees or have the highest revenue but rather the quality of their story and how much entertainment value they offer the show. Candidates are immediately disqualified if they can not quickly convince our producers why they deserve to be further vetted in our selection process. They must demonstrate innovation, company culture, outstanding customer service, enthusiasm, or a track record of success. Our process from research to selection can take up to several weeks.
