Commonly Asked Questions
Would you only accept a 4-pager venture summary at the first (screening) stage or will a first version of the business plan be acceptable? What criteria will the judges use to evaluate my submission?
- The first stage of the competition requires teams to submit only the 4-page venture summary. Judges will evaluate these summaries based on a set of elements provided in a score sheet. You may find the general guide under Judges & Criteria.
Are there any sample copy or specifications from past venture summary or business plans? Must the documents be submitted in word document or if detailed power power slides would be appropriate?
- No sample copies are available from previous submissions. All teams’ ideas and plans are confidential information. No specific size or margin so long as the information fits the maximum of 4-page for venture summary and 15-pages for plan, inclusive of exhibits and appendices.
