I have an idea/concept but have not yet developed a prototype. Am I eligible to submit?

We ask that applicants only submit their product if they have a prototype available. While we do not require that you provide a physical sample with your initial online submission, we will need a sample later if you are selected to attend a virtual event.


Product samples will need to be sent in advance of the virtual event, if invited to present.


If I have a prototype but no capacity to manufacture, am I eligible to submit?

We have manufacturing facilities and if your submission is selected at the final round we can possibly look into manufacturing of the product.
