Judging Criteria

  • Creativity and Design
    We're looking for ambitious, professional, and functional designs that just work.
  • Technical Proficiency
    While the theme is entrepreneurship, the medium is through tech. We're looking for great technology used uniquely.
  • Entrepreneurship and Scalability
    Here we are. This is what matters. How viable is your project? What pain does it alleviate?
