Feel like boosting your idea?
Yes! You still have time to apply for a change regarding your future (you know… a little step may be the beginning of a great journey!). Of course, we are talking about Startup Weekend Brasov
We talked about networking, about brainstorming… but in the end “what’s the judging shizzle”?
Well, here we are with some answers:
The Startup Weekend judging criteria is broken up into three sections. Teams are judged according to the following 4 criteria (weighed equally):
- Business Model
Can this idea make money? Is there positive customer growth or revenue? Is there a customer acquisition / rollout strategy? Has a revenue model been defined and is it realistic? Is the idea/team ready for capital and execution? Would you invest in this company at this point?
- Customer Validation
Did the team identify customers (demographic, location etc)? Did the team get out and talk to customers? What is the value proposition to customers? What channels of communication are used? Product/Market fit?
- Technical – Execution
Is there a functional product (e.g.in the case of an app, did they build one)? Were architecture diagrams and API signatures included? Which services did they integrate with? How much of the product is running on a real server with non-sample data?
- Design – Execution
Does it have a professional look and feel? Does it deliver a compelling and captivating user experience? Is it memorable? What key insights were gathered over the weekend to go in this creative direction?
Wrapup, register and pitch your idea! Oh, We almost forgot: you also have to smile. A lot.
