You can be college students and professionals. You can be from any part of world. You just need to have an open and curious mind to experience the unknown!

Do I have to participate in all days?

Unless you are part of the organizing team, mentors, speakers, event volunteers, or judges, it is expected that you participate in all days of the event. It is important for your own learning experience and to minimize distractions or disruptions for the team you choose to work with.

Do I need a team?

Your first application is individual. Once your idea gets selected (if selected), you will be asked to work in a team! A good team should be made up of people from different backgrounds and experiences who work together to create a strong minimum viable product. Having more team members helps with market research and business model development, allowing for a quicker development of an MVP to present.

What if my idea doesn’t get selected?

On last day, the aim of the voting process is not to reject any particular ideas but to identify the most popular and promising pitches and limit the number of teams to ensure diversity in skills and backgrounds.
