All questionnaire answers will be given a score from 1-5. However, this score is merely a guideline for judges. All judges will rank teams as they see fit. We ask judges to keep two questions in mind while reading the questionnaires:
Do you believe this team/company could be viable*?
Do you believe the team has what it takes to move on to subsequent rounds and be competitive?
While we would love to give you set percentages as judging criteria for each section, we don't believe it makes sense. Judging is inherently subjective, and each company should be treated as a whole not as the sum of its parts.
Viability defined as: a compelling market opportunity, possible sustained competitive advantage, able to make money, originality, feasibility, etc
