WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO ACCOMPLISH AT THE END OF GROUND ZERO?

While there are no specific requirements in terms of what teams should have accomplished by Sunday, it’s in your best interest to plan your pitch around what you’ll be judged for on Sunday:

  1. Customer Validation (Are you building something that people actually want?)
  2. Business Model (How do you plan on making this a successful business?)
  3. Innovation (How original or unique is the proposed solution or problem?)
