2. Coaches

Coaches will be in today from about 12-5pm. They'll be walking around and talking to teams, but if you need specific expertise, please let your organizers know and we'll hook you up with the right coaches.

3. Judging Criteria:

-Business Model Validation
Who are your key partners? Is there a customer validation and acquisition rollout strategy? Did the team identify customers (demographic, location etc)? Did the team get out and talk to customers? What is the value proposition to customers? What is the cost and revenue breakdown/model, partnerships identified, and rollout strategy? Can this idea make money? Is there positive customer growth or revenue? Has a revenue model been defined and is it realistic?

-Product Execution
Have you established a "Minimal Viable Product" for the weekend (software, hardware, etc.)? *Note: an MVP is the minimum set of features to be able to start collecting data. Will you able to demo something functional?

-User Experience Design
Does it have a professional look and feel? Does it deliver a compelling and captivating user experience? Is it memorable? What key insights were gathered over the weekend to go in this creative direction?

4. Team Survey

Your project manager is responsible for filling out the Team Survey. This will sign you up for Demo Presentations on Sunday. If you do not fill out the Survey, your team will not present on Sunday night. Go to www.f6s.com/startupweekend to enter your Team information.

Good luck!
