Teams will need to submit their apps on my.technovationchallenge.org by Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 5pm PT. The first round of judging will take place May 1st -May 20th, 2018. Judging will take place online and in-person.
Teams have the option of A) attending a Regional Pitch Event OR B) selecting Virtual Judging.
A) Regional Pitch Events- Local Regional Pitch Events will appear on teams’ dashboards via my.technovationchallenge.org. If teams choose to attend a Regional Pitch Event , they will have the opportunity to pitch live to a panel of judges. If you have any questions about whether your team will participate in a Regional Pitch event, you can consult your mentor or your Regional Ambassador.
B) Online judging- Teams participating virtually will be judged online, grouped by region, and division. Their submissions will be scored by a panel of virtual judges from around the world.
The top scoring teams from the Regional Pitch Events and Virtual Judging categories will advance to the Semifinals. We will announce the Semifinalists at the end of May. The entire Semifinal Round of judging will take place online. The teams will be narrowed down to the finalists, who will move on to the World Pitch Summit.
