All winners had to meet the criteria defined in regulations of the ranking. The competition also includes enterprises which started to operate in the market before 2010 and continue their activity uninterruptedly until today. One of the criteria was revenue, which had to go between 3 and 200 million PLN in the base year 2010. It is worth noting that all the awarded enterprises reported increase of cash revenue on sales and no losses in the years 2010 - 2012.
