Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:
Does a similar concept/idea already exist? Think outside the box and make your idea as unique as possible
Is the solution relevant, and is there an appetite for it? You must consider how likely, or unlikely, it would be for people to use the solution. Also, is it commercially viable?
Does the solution actually help make society better?
Is the solution gamified, and does the gamified element actually improve the solution? The gamification needs to add value, rather than being there just for show
Is there a working prototype? Is it well-designed and fully functioning? We don’t expect perfection in 48-hours, but how much have they managed to achieve?
How clear and concise can you be in 5 minutes? Make sure your pitch is well focused and really sells the solution
