The project's potential beyond the hackathon: does this project have commercial viability? Projects with the greatest entrepreneurship are not necessarily the projects with the highest potential profitability, but that satisfy consumer needs.
This incorporates creativity and originality. Projects with high ingenuity should be unique, and solve a problem in a novel and effective way.
How much did the team do with their time? Projects that score highly should be polished and fully functional.
Was the presentation thorough and convincing? Well presented projects are compelling and have complete and rehearsed presentations.
Was the project of a high technical difficulty? High scoring teams are ambitious in their undertakings.
Did the project stand out to you? What was your overall impression?
