Finalists will be invited to a Judging day where they will pitch in front of a panel of industry experts. The three winners will be selected and announced at Judging day.
Q: What is the pitching format?
Each company will be given a total of eight minutes on stage, four minutes to pitch followed by four minutes for a Question and Answer session with the judging panel.
Finalists will be scored against; the Pitch Quality, Disruption and Innovation, Market Potential and Traction:
Quality of pitch: How well did the presenter communicate with the audience, tell their story and articulate their value proposition.
Disruption and Innovation: How much of a game changer is the product or service. This category aims to score how revolutionary the company is in relation to what the market is doing.
Market potential: What is the potential market size and scale of the product or service. This could be in relation to an existing market (and therefore taking market share) or to the creation of a new market segment.
Traction: How much traction has the company achieved. Where the product is not yet in market what testing (and feedback) has been received.
Q: How and when will the winners be notified?
Winners will be notified on Judging day during a short award ceremony, and we will launch the winners publicly after this event.
