Accelerate

Accelerate: Share your venture and present your prototype!

The idea is to accelerate market introduction of projects in development or early sales stages.

Contestants will present a three-minute pitch, a Minimum Viable Product, and a Business Plan. A panel of industry experts will choose 5 finalists that will compete in the Final for a USD 20,000 prize. The other finalist projects will be granted a USD 2,000 prize each.

Finalists will present their pitches to a panel of experts in the Final.

To be able to submit an application for this category, ventures must not have accepted any funding in excess of USD 150,000; their sales revenue must not be in excess of USD 100,000; and, if the venture is an incorporated company, it must prove that it is less than 12 months old, i.e., the date of incorporation must be any date after 7/31/2018.
