    • Market fit
    • Technical Affordability
  • Each team might get a chance to pitch live to our Technical Panel (ONLINE) to proceed for round 2. The idea needs to contain an explanation of how it is of technical benefit for the user, implementer. The idea also needs to show if there is a suitable market fit and/or if the idea has a social impact. The final, after submitted prototypes, will be held online (if social conditions permit, will be conducted offline) where the selected teams will be notified about their final results.
