Below is an overview of suggestions for your prototype plus links to data, slides, and other resources presented at the Kickoff event May 5th…
Judges on May 20th will be looking for:
- A working prototype on a mobile phone or desktop simulation (we will have a projector)
- This does not have to be complete but demonstrates the experience, value, and utility
- To define the strategy, consider a few slides about market goals and a business model
- Prepare around 10 minutes of overview and display of value to make Boston Better!
