Judging Criteria and Guidelines


Judging Criteria

Time to show your true qualities. A good business plan contains many sound characteristics that mark it out as a quality proposition. But judges will be looking closely at all aspects of the teams and their submissions with a keen eye on to finding the elusive proposals that are destined to make history. Judges will be looking at the following criteria (amongst others) during their deliberations.

  1. Innovation and Creativity
  2. Execution and Practicality
  3. Market Potential & Growth
  4. Investors' Return
  5. Workshop Attendance Records

In the event of the disqualification of a winning entrant for any reason, the Organizer may decide at its sole discretion to select another winner based on the same judging criteria.

The Organizer's decision on all matters relating to the competition including disputes and results will be final and no correspondences or discussions shall be entered into.

The Organizer reserves all rights to matters relating to the competition including competition rules, disputes and disqualification.

 

How are entries evaluated?

The judging panel is composed of the elite members of venture capitalists, successful entrepreneurs and industry professionals. They will place submitted proposals and their teams under close scrutiny. Are proposals viable? What returns will investors get? How convincingly is the idea presented?

Proposals that are likely to stand a chance will be those that have a foundation in creativity and innovation, a solid business proposition, sound strategy, reasonable financial analysis and a plausible execution plan. Demonstrate the merits of your proposal and see yourself progress to the finals.
