Judging TAG Business Launch Competition 2012

by David Eckoff · 0 comments

This month, I’m a judge in the semi-finals round of the TAG Business Launch Competition 2012.

This will be my fifth year judging the competition and it’s one of my favorite weeks of the year. I love seeing the variety of startups in Georgia. And enjoy learning from the perspective of the other judges.

Over two days, each of the 10 semi-finals companies make a 15 minute pitch to the panel of judges, followed by a 15 minute Q&A session. At the end of each day, the judges discuss their views about each company and summarize feedback for the company about their plan and presentation.

At the end of the two days, judges deliberate and we select four companies to continue to the finals round.

Companies vie for a grand prize of $50,000 in cash and a share of more than $450,000 in professional services from various service providers.
