We decided to go with the Top 6 ideas because it was so close at the end, and since we have 6 judges it has a certain symmetry. The  finalists that will be going on to the live judging event are (drumroll please…):

Congratulations to these six companies; they all have incredibly impressive ideas and our judges are going to have their work cut out for them!

The competition was fierce and all of the ideas submitted were excellent. You can review all of the submissions here.

Here is what happens next:

  • On November 4th the finalists will present their concepts to a panel of judges comprised of sponsors of the competition in a live virtual event. Think an online version of “Shark Tank” or “Dragon’s Den“.
  • Each presentation will last 15 minute: 10 minutes to pitch and 5 minutes for Q&A from the judges.
  • Using a 10 point scale for each category, judges rate each presentation on:
    • Originality of concept

    • Presentation quality

    • Market potential

    • Scalability

    • Ease of Implementation

  • After the presentations are complete, we’ll poll the audience on which pitch was best and factor the vote score into the judge scores.
  • The highest final score wins. The winner takes home the pot and chooses which of the judges they would like to engage with afterwards as a mentor.

Our esteemed judges will be:
