  • Selection process (1/2):

  • During the first week of the competition the public voters rate (1-5 stars) the product/service based on the pitch video.

  • Anyone can vote for free, but registration to Innozed web-application is necessary and requires an email address.

  • The more videos a voter judges, the more credits he/she gets and thus is more likely to win prizes (e.g. cameras and movie tickets) in the final raffle between the registered voters in Innozed.

  • Tools to support the selection process:

  • Innozed (www.innozed.com) is an innovation management software (in beta-testing phase in June 2012) for evaluating ideas. All interactions are done via email and can be completed within minutes.

  • Registered community members can send ideas (e.g. pitch videos) to Innozed, which are then sent to other members as evaluation tasks for rating and commenting. Innozed applies game mechanics by rewarding credits to evaluators based on completed evaluation tasks.

  • Based on the feedback Innozed calculates “an innovation score” for the ideas using an algorithm for evaluating their business potential.

  • Expected results:

  • The competition aims to boost entrepreneurship and the start-up mentality, general pitching and idea-marketing skills, and raise awareness of innovative business ideas and the teams behind those ideas. In best case scenario the start-ups get new contacts and financing from private sector investors.

  • In addition to participants, also the voters (general public) can win prizes based on their activity.
