Rising Star Company Award

Open to miners, metals producers, processors, equipment makers, exchanges, clearing houses, recyclers, technology providers, blockchain pioneers and any others contributing to the metals value chain since January 2019.

The world of metals is filled with companies that exhibit an entrepreneurial spirit of advancing new technologies, transforming markets and re-evaluating established traditions in order to move the industry forward.

The Rising Star Award recognizes the achievements of either a genuine startup business or an existing business that has moved into a new field. Disrupting a new space in an already crowded industry takes guts, superior execution, brilliant marketing and a nimble organization.

Entrants might include, for example, companies with a regional or country focus that have successfully positioned themselves on the world stage, engineering or trading startups, businesses that have moved their entire focus upstream or downstream within a given industry, or those who have grown exponentially by pushing beyond the technological status quo.
