CRITERIA FOR CATEGORIES
Our judges will focus on the following criteria to assess the entries. As part of the consultation with our Advisory Board, we have determined that the following five focus areas are vital ingredients to success. Judges will review what commercial success looks like for your organization, your export potential and success stories within the international and local marketplace. We want to see evidence of your company’s track record in creating a product or service, then effectively selling to domestic and/or international markets.
What is your company’s impact on its sector, employees, stakeholders and environment? Does your product or service take the country’s smarts and create new jobs and wealth for the nation, or make the lives of citizens better? Does your innovation inspire through originality and ambition? Judges will review how entrants are aligning their success measures –such as addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
They will also look for business innovations that have helped your organization translate its IP for commercial or societal success. Elements will include your organization’s business strategy, a successful pivot, or its adaptability to major challenges, risk or unexpected outcomes. They will look at your leadership and human resources strategy and all the other non-R&D factors that are vital to successful growth.
Judges also want to hear stories of organizations that have adapted or pivoted research and innovations to build a product or service for an entirely different sector. What horizontal applications of these particular technologies have been used to solve a challenge? How are they themselves consumers of emerging tech to create new products?
