IPrize FAQ


1. What are the minimum number of team members needed to
be eligible for a prize?

2. What constitutes a successful application?

     A successful application:

  • meets minimum benchmarks identified in the judging criteria,
  • solves a well-defined problem,
  • provides an articulate and unique solution,
  • demonstrates an understanding of the target market,
  • identifies competition in the same market and addresses how the idea/product can be differentiated,
  • contains a plan to generate revenue OR stable funding for non-profits, and
  • offers a concise, complete, and compelling oral presentation to the judging panel.
