Evaluation criteria

Challenge the status quo

There are lots of complex problems in the world that will only be solved with a new way of thinking. We want to support an idea that approaches an existing problem in a different way; one that is logical but creative.

Be simple but smart

It’s easy to create something that’s complicated. We believe the smartest people can solve problems in beautifully simple ways. The winning idea will be stripped of any unnecessary complexity, but will still be innovative and smart.

Be a force for good

We believe business has the power to create positive change in the world. We will choose an idea that is solving a problem and in doing so, creating a positive impact for lots of people/businesses.

The top teams will be shortlisted for the final round, A Pitch Day at Stint HQ.
