There are two stages to the Artemis Top 50 Competition, a qualifying round and a finalist round.
The questions in the shorter qualifying round and the more complete evaluation in stage two are designed to bring together the most important information on your company and its flagship product. The information will provide the judges with a basic understanding of the value of the product’s technological innovation and your company’s potential to build significant revenue and profitability.
The survey evaluates companies and their flagship products from three perspectives:
• Technology: Both intellectual property and know-how
• Application: Product design for efficient and reliable performance in the field
• Business Viability: Potential for wide-scale application of this product in the market with a robust business behind it. In order to rank the most promising approaches to the different water resource challenges, the questionnaire asks you to choose a category that best defines what your flagship product does.
Many of the most important products that are emerging into the market bring several innovations together. The questionnaire provides you with an option of choosing a secondary as well as a primary category. A separate question asks you to identify the market that it will address first. We also want to hear about any metrics that you can offer to demonstrate the sustainability of your product, from an economic, social and environmental perspective.
Note: The Artemis Project and the judging team for the Top 50 Company Competition will base its opinion on the material rendered in the company application. We assume that the companies have submitted this information in good faith and that the information is accurate.
We assume an optimistic perspective that the teams behind each of these companies can fulfill the promise of their early-stage ventures.
Applicants are invited to supplement this application with additional material. Keep in mind that judges will only refer to this supplemental material at their own discretion.
