In determining the prize recipients, the selection committee will evaluate the entire submission and assess the overall merits of the business model, the quality of the idea, the written business plan, the oral presentations and the capacity of management to execute on the proposed plan. Ultimately, prize recipients will be those who are best able to convey the merits of their business venture and their ability to execute on the business plan to the selection committee. The entire process culminates with a gala dinner and awards ceremony on March 23, EXECUTIVE SUMMARY - WRITTEN PITCH 4.1 The executive summary assesses the general fit of the submission with both the eligibility requirements and the overall objectives of the competition.
