Becoming a Judge
Initially the judging process, including feedback and the evaluation of plans, is accomplished through an online judging system. All judges and teams are asked to register on-line and are given a user ID and password to the judging and grading platform. Judging process takes place in three phases. Entries will come from different sectors viz. social, finance, telecommunications, consultancy, power, retail, service, web portals, cleantech, biotechnology, IT-software, entertainment, manufacturing etc.
In Phase 1: Judges are sent the executive summaries submitted by the participant and are asked to evaluate the entries on this basis.
In Phase 2: Judges are provided with the Business Plans given by the top teams qualified for the semi-Final. The Finalists are then shortlisted on the basis of the last business plan.
In Phase 3: Finals will be a round of presentations, scored by a panel of judges to decide the winning teams and the prize packages.
Becoming a Mentor
People with business and particularly entrepreneurial experience are encouraged to become Mentors. Mentors provide one-to-one assistance to student teams that are participating in Eureka!. Through this process, mentors get a chance to view some of the best business ideas from around the globe. The involvement of mentors in Eureka! starts from Phase 2 where the Semi-Finalists are assigned mentors and the mentoring takes place through electronic media and an Offline Mentor's Meet.
Phase 2: Each team is allotted a minimum of two mentors each and these mentors are expected to help them throughout the second stage of the competition by giving suitable feedback and guidance.
Mentor’s Meet: Each of the Semi-Finalists teams is invited to attend Mentor’s Meet which is an annual event where they can interact with mentors face-to-face. In this meet, mentors are expected to help teams enhance their B-Plan and advise them on specific topics such as finance, marketing, technical & legal issues etc.
Mentors and Judges may include:
- Venture capitalists
- Attorneys & Consultants
