Then the combined list of the top 70 males and females was pared to the definitive list of Arizona’s 35 Entrepreneurs, 35 and Under.

According to The Arizona Republic and AZCentral.com, applicants were selected by a five-person panel: Dave Bittner, Beanstalk CFO Group; Anil Jain, managing partner of Endeaver Innovation Partners and a man recognized in the 2008 "35 entrepreneurs" competition: Robin Orchard, president, Orchard Medical Consulting; Andrew Johnson, business and innovations reporter, The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com; and Kathy Tulumello, business editor, The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com.

Lina Quintero remarks, “This is an award I will never forget. To be recognized at 27 as one of Arizona’s up-and-coming business leaders is a remarkable accomplishment. Yet, with this accomplishment comes tremendous expectations for the future. This recognition will spur my motivation to take the next giant leap in my career.”
