HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN CHALLENGE SERIES
STEP 2: SUBMIT YOUR IDEA FOR SELECTED CHALLENGE
2019 July 24th- September 10th
Do you have an idea of how to solve one of the challenges? The solution should meet the criteria set by the challenge owner and the expectations expressed during the Workshop Day. Make sure that you are able to continue working on this solution, in case your idea is selected and the challenge owner wants to buy the finished product. Submit your ideas with a minimum bid offer until September 10. If you have any questions, contact the challenge owner or the GovTech Lab team.
STEP 3: PITCH DAY
2019 September 16th @ GovTech Baltic Leaders
We invite you to present your ideas at the GovTech Baltic Leaders Conference & Pitch Day. A committee - made of the challenge owners, investors and accelerators - will evaluate the pitches. The winners from each challenge will then be selected to further develop their product and will receive prizes, including monetary awards, mentorship from the challenge owner, invitations to BuildStuff Conference @ Vilnius and a participation in GovTech Incubator for further product development by January 2020.
STEP 4: PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT
2019 October - 2020 January
All the teams, startups, academics and companies are invited to develop prototypes for the selected challenge. All the best teams from Pitch Day participate in the GovTech Incubator programme (more information soon).
STEP 5: DEMO DAY
Demo Day will feature presentations of developed products for each challenge. This event brings together challenge owners and other relevant stakeholders, including investors and accelerators looking for innovative startups. The best product developers will receive a cash prize and, if the solution meets the challenge owner’s expectations, it will allow for the start of the procurement process.
