Project management team (30%)

The capability of the project management team is evaluated according to track record, execution ability, probability of launch, individual qualifications and roles within the team.

Business model and time to market (30%)

The business model is evaluated by the short and long term objectives, apparent market need, target market and marketing strategy, and realistic assessment of the project viability. Projects that launch within three months of grant disbursement are preferred.

Creativity and innovation (30%)

Innovative technology, creative solutions, disruptive ideas, emerging technology and breakthrough problem-solving will score higher.

Social responsibility (10%)

Preference will be given to projects with socially responsible dimensions, such as open source software, creative commons IP, ethical decision making, or which contribute to solving social problems.
