For your submission to be considered you will need to be a team of four students and the project should be submitted as a PowerPoint presentation of eight maximum slides.

No prototype will be required but having one would be an advantage.

This will enable participants to:

  • Formulate a market problem
  • Start building a network
  • Sharpen their analytical and synthesizing skills
