The judging panel will judge the Entries on: Problem definition Is the scenario the team is attempting to address clear and well thought out? How is the problem currently being solved, if at all? Understanding users What are the team’s specific target markets?
Has the team understood their target users and their needs in a credible way, i.e. through being affected by the problem themselves or having a direct link to potential users? Understanding the market Has the team considered and adequately differentiated from competing apps or other alternative solutions to the problem? What is the unique selling point of the app? How will the team generate their first 1000 users? Data feasibility Has the team considered where exactly they will get the data from, if needed? (e.g. does data come from users, oris it government data?) Are there appropriate incentives for whoever is providing the data? Technical Implementation How complex is the app? Does it exploit the key functions of a smartphone handset in a simple way? What is the minimum viable specification for the initial product, and what features could be released later?
