How will the participants be selected?

A jury of experts (VCs and successful entrepreneurs, all based in the area you are targeting) will select companies based on predetermined criteria. Evaluation criteria include: overall description of your U.S. plan, management team behind the project, product and its features, product’s references (clients, strategic partners, investors if you have any) as well as financial resources needed to support your U.S. development (or a credible plan showing how you will get these resources).
