Judging Criteria

  • Business Value
    We rated “business value” and the other criteria on a scale from 1 to 5. How significant and relevant is the problem that the solution is trying to solve? Does that problem affect a market that we know and understand? Does it have a market?
  • Coolness
    “Coolness” is an attempt to measure the important “wow” factor. Is it something a human being would feel delighted, excited, empowered, or even relieved to use?
  • Realistic Capability
    What gets done in the space of a hackathon is a decent indication of the dependencies and level of effort that would be required to put the technology into production. This category is our way of quantifying that
  • Level of Innovation
    Technology can be cool but not innovative—and vice versa. How the team positions their hackathon entry. Does it pull something off that hasn’t been pulled off before? Does it do something new and unique?
